“Advocacy is the ability for one person to hold space for another person who is having a rough time. It might mean the advocate is holding someone’s hand, assisting with remembering medical instructions, possibly calling and making appointments for that person. It depends on what that person needs, and we who are in advocacy provide what assistance we can with compassion, love, and dedication to the person who’s been hurt.”
