Habitat for Humanity defines advocacy as changing policies and systems to eliminate barriers to adequate, affordable housing in order to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

In other words, while not visible like homes themselves, laws, regulations and rules about land and building are a major part of housing. Smart policies and systems can promote access to decent housing, while other policies and systems may create unnecessary barriers. These barriers may make it harder than it needs to be to find land for construction, build the home itself or be able to afford a place to live.

Just like building, advocating for smart policies and systems is a way to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
