Tearfund Advocacy Toolkit

Roots, Second Edition

by Tearfund

‘Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world would do this, it would change the earth.’

William Faulkner

Tearfund’s Advocacy toolkit is used by staff, partners and other organisations. It is one of the most popular in the ROOTS series (Resourcing Organisations with Opportunities for Transformation and Sharing). Given its popularity, why this new edition?

When the Advocacy toolkit was written in 2002, it was pioneering in the sector – the first of its kind. Since then advocacy practice has changed, adapted and developed across the sector.

Tearfund’s staff and partners have grown in their expertise and experience, lessons have been learned, thinking has moved on, and there has been an exponential rise in the use of social and digital media.
