Why is this an essential advocacy issue for clients or your organization?

If you would like to pick a topic close to my previous assignments, the last bit of work was on mental healthcare for the medicaid population. Per the NASW Code of Ethics (n.d.) a social worker’s ethical responsibility to the broader society asserts that “social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully” (section 6.04 Social and Political Action). Policy advocacy is a mechanism that can be utilized to meet this ethical responsibility and have a direct impact on the needs of our consumers and communities. What For this assignment learners will propose and describe elements of an advocacy campaign relating to a key issue for clients and/or their organization. The assignment will answer questions from Toolkit 10: Advocating for Change The key questions to be answered are identified below. Students will draw on information provided in the KU Community Tool Box, Chapters 30-33 in responding to the list of questions from the Toolkit. (https://ctb.ku.edu/en/advocating-change) The Advocacy Strategy Paper will include the following sections: I. Identifying the Advocacy Issue: Why is this an essential advocacy issue for clients or your organization? This section should provide a clear statement of the issue and the reason(s) you selected it. Your writing should use questions Section 1a and 1b in the tool (Research the Issue …) but need not answer each question in order. II. Advocacy Goals (Directly from toolkit): State the broad goals and specific objectives for advocacy effort including: Broad advocacy goals (e.g., meet otherwise unmet needs; reverse or correct a situation; prevent the loss of a valued asset; change public opinion)? Specific objectives (how much of what by when) (e.g., “By 2020, increase by 50% the public investment in early childhood education.”)? III. Tactics (Questions directly from Toolkit): Describe the advocacy tactics you will use focusing on research and direct-action tactics. First, select either (1) conduct advocacy research OR (2) Direct action campaign. (This selection should relate to the advocacy goals.) If you chose research: discuss your plan for that (drawing on the description of advocacy research strategies, Chapter 31). If direct action: describe tactics in a direct-action campaign that you will use (drawing on the list of 20 direct action campaign tactics from Chapter 33. Select no more than three of the 20 tactics). In this section, be sure to motivate and defend the approach you are proposing. Be clear on how these tactics will help secure your advocacy goals. IV. Organizational Fit. Reflect on the toolkit Q4: “Review whether the selected advocacy tactics fit the group’s situation and goals (i.e., fits the group’s style, makes use of available resources and allies, minimizes opposition, is flexible, is likely to work).” Is your proposed advocacy approach in keeping with your organization’s situation and goals? Why or why not? How The advocacy strategies paper is not an academic paper to be written in APA format. This is a strategies paper, an actionable paper that one can use as a guide to engage in policy advocacy on the topic of your choosing. Papers should be 3-4 pages single spaced. Although APA format is not required, the paper should be organized, logical, and consumable. Below are some examples of comprehensive advocacy strategies. Note that what you are creating is not this exhaustive. The examples are to provide you with a framework of this type of writing. ACT! 2015: Advocacy Strategy Toolkit (Links to an external site.)
