LAF Community Advocacy & Leadership

LAF’s goal is to demystify, decode advocacy by equipping society with knowledge and tools. We help communities become assertive to pursue and promote active engagement in a progression by giving the confidence to advocate effectively. Part of the LAF role in Innovation is to provide the space for Leadership to develop and test their ideas. And it turns out that sometimes these are not just leaders, but entire programs! With a great team evaluating the impacts of expanding the use of community-based alternatives to society’s participation, We’re also mobilizing public and clinical health practitioners to join in this great cause.

Human & Social justice advocacy has been defined as systematized efforts aimed at influencing public attitudes, policies, and laws to create a more socially just society guided by the vision of human rights that may include awareness of socio-economic inequities, protection of social rights as well as human identity, experiences of oppression, and spirituality. As a community Institution, LAF will support our society of Students, Parents, and any Individual for social change and human rights consistent.

LAF Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that our people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.


LAF is your partner in building better communities for all. We open doors, find answers, meet challenges, and develop resources.
