Publication Preview: Defensive Advocacy

We talked to advocates and funders to better understand how they think about advocacy on the defense. We wanted to understand whether it was a distinct category of work and the degree to which there were useful frameworks and tools for evaluating it. 

The findings are captured in our upcoming brief, When the Best Offense is a Good Defense: Understanding and Measuring Advocacy on the Defense.”

The brief represents our key takeaways from those conversations:

  • Categories of defensive work describing how advocates conceptualize five different types of defense, ranging from reacting to changing circumstances to more proactive approaches;
  • Suggestions for how to think about defense-specific outcomes, impact, and evaluation; and
  • Key takeaways for understanding unique aspects of this kind of advocacy work.
