Community Advocacy is a voluntary community organisation that works to strengthen the awareness of residents concerning their social rights, so they access and promote their social rights as an expression of their empowerment as individuals and as a community.
Their primary goals are to teach residents to advocate on their own behalf or on behalf of their neighbours in order to access their legal entitlements, to find solutions to common problems and participate in decision making bodies which affect their lives; to provide information and expertise with regards to rights and entitlements; and to facilitate community empowerment and solidarity.
Community Advocacy has walk-in ‘Storefront’ Advocacy Centres, in Jerusalem, Beer Sheva and Lod, which promote the shared effort of people to change policy that perpetuates inequality, intolerance and exclusion.
