orientation with respect to rights assured by the law

Definitions of advocacy on the Web:

* active support of an idea or cause etc.; especially the act of pleading or arguing for something

* Advocacy is an umbrella term for organized activism related to a particular set of issues.

* This term refers to the role parents or guardians play in developing and monitoring their child's educational program. Advocating for your child means knowing what rights are assured you by the law and actively participating in the decision-making process to ensure that the services are delivered in line with your goals for your child's development and education.

advocacy is a proactive way to promote the mentioned services and disseminate info. in this regard. The people who are willing to advocate will provide info. reg. community resources( addresses, doctors, providers) in order to reach out families in need of such services.

Generally speaking, an advocate is someone interested in promoting a particular agenda( for example fight against cancer, AIDS or in this case, services for families parenting newborn babies). He/she will spread info, conduct community meetings, write letters to politicians on the topic. He/she will refer families to specialized services in the community.

Sorry for the typo. I meant "see the explanation".
