Why is Advocacy Important?

In today’s highly politicized atmosphere, we are hearing more about advocacy than ever before. For this reason, it is important that we take the time to understand what the term means and why it is important. First, advocacy can be defined as any activity by an individual or group that aims to influence political, economic, social and institutional decisions.i Another definition describes advocacy as the act of pleading for, supporting, or recommending.ii Clearly, this term can encompass many activities that occur daily, which leads to the question of, ‘why is advocacy important?’ In a democratic society, advocacy is incredibly important for various reasons.

I have never in all my life been so ready for an election to be over! I am sick of supporters on both sides posting lies and half trues. But mostly, I am so disappointed with some of my associates (I used to say friends, but now I know their true feelings) who believe in the racist and bigoted ideology being espoused. Maybe when it's over and the political consultants, ad agencies, and spin doctors get paid the racism against people not of your color, be it black or white, red or yellow; mysogynist behavior desiring to put women back in their place as second class citizens; belief that someone else is responsible for your financial status; uncertainty of where you will land on the social hierarchy; fear that others will learn your true intellect; and, desire to turn back the demographical hands of the clock will subside. I know it wont end. However, this election has indeed been enlightening. I am so glad:

For Immediate Release: September 20, 2016
Negro Airmen Int’l ‘OPERATION SKYHOOK ATLANTA’
ATLANTA--- The Negro Airmen International. Inc. (NAI) Black Wings in Action will hold a media conference on Saturday September 24, 2016, at 1:00 PM, at Frank’s in The Old Mill, at 1095 Highway 54W, in Fayetteville, GA 30214.
Officers, members, supporters and former NAI training program participants will be on hand to reveal plans to continue the organization’s purpose and track record in assisting youth and minorities in exploring and entering the vast array of careers and jobs in the aviation industry.
According to Sam L. Jones, President, NAI, Inc., the September 24th activity will also serve as a rallying of the troops and other prospects to gather and organize members and financial, human resources, corporate and community partnerships and support to move forward with a plan to continue one of the organization’s most successful and rewarding programs. NAI’s New Hope Project, created in 2004, successfully trained over 80 students many of whom are employed in the industry today. In Miami in 2008, although the triple rise in fuel costs was a factor, funding for the program ended. Presently, officers are exploring locations in the Atlanta Metropolitan area to continue its programs under the title
“Operation Skyhook Atlanta”.
NAI plans to play a leadership role addressing expert predictions of workforce shortages in the Aviation Industry, and in increasing the awareness of youths and young adults in middle schools, high schools and technical programs and colleges to the opportunities available in the aviation industry. With the support of the community, this will certainly be a win-win for the young people as well as the public at large. The public’s image of and confidence in qualified personnel to serve in the industry is of even greater importance as the number of air travelers increases and the focus on safety and security elevates.
