Written Material

The most important point that this article makes is how understanding of 'advocacy' has changed in the last two decades or so. Richler uses the work of the Canadian Association for Community Living to illustrate this. She writes that when the Association first started, advocacy usually meant calling for better services, or simply their creation. Now there is a strong and dynamic inclusion movement and the Association has consequently changed its focus towards human rights as a way of encompassing this movement. She also implicitly argues that although understanding of 'advocacy' changes, the fight for inclusive and better communities for all people is 'advocacy's' ultimate interpretation. Keyword: Advocacy
