Visualizing Information for Advocacy is a book about how advocates and activists use visual elements in their campaigns. You can learn how to influence issues using the right combination of information, design, technologies, and networks. Through over 60 examples of visual information campaigns from around the world, authors show how they capture attention, present stories, and take us on journeys through data.
Authors believe that the value of information depends on its quality, and its usefulness depends on our ability to communicate it successfully. To influence people, they say, activists must make strong arguments and communicate using strong evidence. Well-timed, rigorous, and well-presented information is the greatest asset activists possess.
