This module is designed to provide an introduction to advocacy for immigrant and refugee children and their families. The module follows one family’s story and provides examples of advocacy by medical providers as well as activities to complete at multiple levels of advocacy, ranging from advocating for an individual patient in your clinic to advocating for a vulnerable population at the national level. These activities represent just a few of the myriad ways you can be involved and make an impact in your community.
