With the ALS bucket challenge all over the place this month - it made me think about a part of social justice that is really important and that is ADVOCACY! I am so excited that this debilitating disease is getting so much attention - the awareness about it is just as important as the money raised. Raising awareness is a way to advocate for those who can't always do it for themselves - a way to bring attention to a need, an issue or a problem. When we know about something - we can act! Dumping a bucket of ice water on our heads for a cause is crazy - but cool and definitely effective!
