n. (AD•vuh•kit) one who defends or supports a person or cause: an
advocate for protection of coldwater resources.
At its core, advocacy
is the process of taking a position and persuading others of it merits with the
goal of securing consensus or a decision that advances a position.
Trout Unlimited has a
long history of advocacy successes, many due to the hard work of people who
never would have described themselves as advocates.
In fact, TU’s
effectiveness lies in the willingness of grassroots volunteers—people like
you—to conduct “on-the-ground” restoration projects and to serve as advocates
supporting Trout Unlimited's mission to conserve, protect and restore North
America’s trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds.
