This chapter focuses on national advocacy groups for older adults. Although individual advocacy in social work is important and necessary, organizational advocacy is also essential, and has the advantage of potentially bringing greater and more sustained resources to advocacy efforts. Organizational advocacy can be most powerful when combined with individual stories, thereby giving a personal face to the issues.
