In this blog series, we’ll dive into the 22 changemaker roles. Each of these roles plays a part in driving transformation and working towards a just world in their unique way. We share them to help you discover your own role as a changemaker because supporting changemakers around the globe means creating a more whole, beautiful, and just world.

Have you ever witnessed someone stepping forward, even in the face of adversity, to champion the rights of others?

These individuals can’t walk past an injustice without feeling the urge to act. Their hearts beat to the rhythm of fairness, equality, and justice, and they’re relentless in their pursuit of liberation. These are the changemakers known as advocates.

About the Advocate

Driven by an innate passion and a deep sense of duty, advocates are not just bystanders. They’re active participants in life, always ready to challenge the status quo.

What’s unique about them is their ability and desire to see beyond the surface to understand the roots of issues and confront them head-on. Their determination is fueled by empathy, a genuine concern for others’ well-being, and a vision of a more equitable world.
