I hope that this group can take on both approaches.
Advocacy is what we should be about. That includes
advocating better way to do things. This is why we have
professional organizations--most individual
practitioners are not in a position to do this work on
their own.

At the same time, we should be supporting our
practitioners by developing a community and community
resources that can help practitioners be effective in
ways that are appropriate to the realities on the
ground.
