E 22: Woman and Advocacy: Cynthia Changyit Levin, From Changing Diapers to Changing the World

In this episode, I talk with Cynthia Changyit Levin about her book, *From Changing Diapers to Changing the World: Why Moms Make Great Advocates and How to Get Started.*

Advocacy is a great way to get involved in driving change in our communities, yet very few of us ever actually learn how to become one. With over a decade of experience, Cynthia offers a step-by-step guide on how to be an effective advocate - in the US and beyond. While her book centres around mom advocates, anyone can learn from and be inspired by it!

Some topics of discussion include:
1. Why moms make great advocates
2. What people can get out of advocacy work (it’s not about being a martyr!)
3. How you as one person can make a difference
4. The importance of non-partisan advocacy
5. Practical steps to get started today!

And more!
