"There are two fundamental premises upon which a framework of organizational capacities for advocacy organizations is based:
- Advocacy organizations and those doing advocacy programs are nonprofits/NGOs. As such, general capacities related to the nonprofit sector are applicable.
- Advocacy organizations, are engaged in a process leading to outcomes around framing issues, providing visibility for those issues and affecting public policy decisions on those issues. As such, there are capaci-ties unique to advocacy organizations to effectively engage in strategies that affect those outcomes." (Raynor)
