Advocacy is an umbrella term for organized activism related to a particular set of issues.
Issue advocacy is any speech relating to issues and the policy positions taken by political candidates and elected officials. It can be as simple as a single statement or it can be as involved as a multimillion dollar campaign of broadcast and print advertisements that spreads the same message. Any group or individual can engage in issue advocacy. A message stops being issue advocacy if it expressly endorses the election or defeat of a candidate. (See also single-issue politics.)
