Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Proverbs 31:8
An advocate is someone who speaks out on behalf of someone else to bring about justice. In Jesus we have the perfect example of an advocate. While we were still God’s enemies, he died on the cross so that our sins could be forgiven. Now he pleads with God on our behalf, as our advocate in heaven. There are many other examples of advocacy in action in the Bible, including Abraham, Moses and Nehemiah.
Advocacy means to speak or take action either with, or on behalf of, the poor, to change the situations that cause their poverty and bring about justice.
