For those who think their calling may be more on the political activism side of the spectrum, I wanted to take a minute and give you some resources you might not have considered. Most major organizations have advocacy priorities that are set by the national board. For example, if you read at the Royal College of Midwives, you will see a collection of research and briefings that share what the RCM thinks is most important right now.
Do you have a political leaning in your call? Check out the national organizations that work around birth – think organizations of nurses, midwives, doctors; and think about international organizations such as Lamaze and La Leche League. Check out the advocacy sections of their website and see if you can find a current need to help fill.
