Advocacy is an activity by an individual or group that aims to influence decisions within political, economic, and social institutions. All organisations undertake advocacy, sometimes in form of robust campaigns, as part of their mandate or to help them promote their values, ideals, reports, recommendations, or the achievement of the SDGs. An organisation that wishes to effect change can benefit enormously from sharing KEY messages EFFECTIVELY across multiple platforms. This helps the institution to achieve its goals by impacting decision makers, rallying stakeholders, and meeting the demands of its donors, while attracting new ones. It can also help to inform the public of the organisation and its purpose, as well as position the brand. Internally, it boosts the morale of staff and helps improve the quality of operations and staff retention. Communication and advocacy are closely linked: one cannot engage in any form of advocacy without some communication, and most communications are targeted at influencing opinions and decisions. This interrelatedness has resulted in the coinage of the term advocacy communication, intersecting both areas. Artificial Intelligence has been in the works for some time, but has recently become indispensable to all tasks within the organisation, including messaging, audio-visual design and distribution. copywriting as well as general task scheduling and implementation. Today, the ability of organisations to compete and survive in a fast evolving advocacy and communication space is heavily reliant on their understanding and application of AI tools.
