Over the last year, TCC Group has been conducting a field review into the world of legal advocacy in the nonprofit sector. Partnering with the Center for Evaluation Innovation and the Atlantic Philanthropies as part of the Atlas Learning Project, which aims to push advocacy in bolder and more effective directions, TCC Group has been examining how advocacy organizations use legal advocacy as a strategy and how funders can best support that work. We are excited to share the results of TCC Group's work to help inform funders, legal advocates, non-legal advocates, and evaluators about the field of legal advocacy.
Legal advocacy – also known as advocacy through the courts – uses the judicial system to advance social change goals. This is often done through bringing forward a legal case in court that focuses on improving a situation for a particular group of disadvantaged people. We invite you to watch the short video to get a better understanding of what legal advocacy is and why it’s important.
As well, we encourage you to visit TCC Group's legal advocacy page to learn more, access new legal advocacy guides for funders and advocates, and sign up to receive new reports on the context of the modern legal system and status of courts.
