The Advocates Staff

DEFINITION: An advocate is a person who openly or publicly supports a particular cause. The word comes from the Latin verb advocare, meaning “to summon,” or “to call to [one’s aid].” An advocate is a helper, someone who not only stands by you, but also stands up for you. Someone who takes upon him or herself your cause, whatever it may be. You can call upon him or her, and he or she will come to your aid. An advocate is there for you when you need help, and he or she does things for you that you are unable to do for yourself.
