Become an Advocate

The word “advocacy” alone can be intimidating for a lot of our members, but it’s important to know that advocacy comes in many forms. Advocacy can mean signing onto a petition or sending a letter to your elected official through the OAC’s Legislative Action Center. It can also give you the opportunity to actually visit your elected official in Washington, DC.

The great thing about the OAC’s advocacy efforts is that you don’t have to be a veteran or expert advocate. We have opportunities for individuals with all types of advocacy experience. The OAC actually trains its members by educating about the advocacy process and giving you the tools you need to effectively advocate.

The OAC encourages every one of our members to get involved in advocacy at some level. And, the OAC has made it easy for you to get started. To learn more about the various ways you can get involved in advocacy, please click here.
