Policy advocacy is the support of any action taken (or not taken) to manage human activities with a view to prevent, reduce, or mitigate harmful effects on nature, natural resources, and people. Policy advocacy usually attempts to change legislation based on social and environmental needs.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Policy advocacy can demonstrate an organization’s firm commitment to its triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit. It can also directly benefit your organization by supporting applicable tax credits or making a previously excluded solution possible.
For New Orleans
The people and environment of New Orleans benefits from any policy that improves the quality of our environment and lives of our people.
