AREAS OF INTERVENTION
ADVOCACY AND POLICY LOBBYING
CFJ believes that strategic public policy advocacy facilitates good governance and is critical in combating poverty. Within this strategic period CFJ will initiate advocacy and policy lobbying with different institutions and policy makers on thematic issues identified under its strategic plan. Our public policy work will involve policy statements, sectoral policies, or prevailing practices promoted by those in authority to guide or control institutional, community, and sometimes individual behavior. CFJ will seek to influence public policies through various forms of persuasive communication. CFJ will work around public policy advocacy through policy analysis, policy strategy development, mobilization and facilitating action.
