This supports the Safe Zone Advocate's Academy by providing guidance and resource for students who are conducting research for advocacy and activism.
Research for Advocacy and Activism starts with an issue or a problem. What is the issue you are concerned with? How are you approaching the problem and what do you need to accomplish?
It’s important, even in the beginning of your research, to figure out what your goal is in relation to your issue. Is your goal to educate other people about your issue? Is your goal to change a policy or a law? Is your goal to gain recognition for something or someone or a group of people? All of these goals require a different plan, and the collection of different kinds of information. Once you set a goal, your research will enable you to make a plan.
