What is an advocate? The term advocate is taken from the legal model. (An attorney is an Advocate.) It is defined as "one who pleads the cause of another" or "one who argues for, defends, maintains or recommends a cause or proposal." The goal of any type of advocacy is empowerment, and positive changes in the systems available to victims of sexual assault.
