Learners explore the role of the community advocate, informal and formal networking and establishing contacts, the power of persistence and accessing the justice system, and step-by-step problem solving. Students learn who is most likely to find himself or herself poor and/or marginalized, the scope and impact of living in poverty, and the special needs of low-income and marginalized persons for community advocates who can assist them in accessing justice. Students look at community advocacy in the context of social welfare laws and the systems that implement them, learn how to approach a problem, work through it systematically, and prepare an action plan.
