Advocacy, Lobbying, and Social Movement

This module explored the importance of politics in the  development of standards that govern human services practices. While  many individuals might believe that politics and human services should  not exist together, you cannot ignore the fact that political activities  influence the way agencies are sustained. This became clearer when  funding of human services programs moved from primarily private  donations to largely public resource streams. To date, politics at all  levels are expected in the everyday practices of human services  administrators and service workers. In this assignment, you will further  explore and reflect on this concept.

Tasks:

Using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, address the following:

  • Discuss the concepts of advocacy, lobbying, and social movement  organizations in terms of their effects on service delivery.  Specifically, focus on who engages in advocacy, what types of lobbying  directly results in public funding, and how social movement  organizations function in their efforts to influence policy.

Submission Details:

  • By the due date assigned, post your responses to this Discussion Area  in a minimum of 200 words. Your response should rely upon at least two  sources from professional literature. This may include the Argosy  University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed  journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations,  agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov). Write in a clear,  concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in  accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA format);  and use accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
