You don't need a power suit to advocate
September 20, 2012 BY Myrdin Thompson
For some, advocacy seems to be something that only high-powered lobbyists and lawyers do, and do better than we can. It means putting on a suit, carrying a large brief case and referencing data at the drop of a hat. But often the best advocates are passionate people like you and me. This is a picture of me in my advocacy outfit. No suits or briefcases. Just me, yoga pants and a cause.
Here’s the truth: Advocacy doesn't need a power suit – just a powerful message and a messenger who feels empowered to advocate. It just needs you. You can be empowered today by emailing your Member of Congress right now. Ask him or her to support vaccines globally so children around the world have a shot at a healthy life.
Find out how I advocate for global vaccines in yoga pants.
