This could be current or previous employment, current or previous field placement, current or previous volunteer experience. Give your classmates a brief synopsis of the mission/service provided by the agency. Then discuss what advocacy activities are currently taking place and how these might be consistent with or contradict points made in the article. Give a few suggestions about how improvements might be made.
