Visualizing Information For Advocacy
Visualizing Information for Advocacy is a book about how advocates and activists use visual elements in their campaigns. In this 155-page book, we explore 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, we show how they capture attention, present stories and take us on journeys through data.
Whether we’re swamped by it or starved of it, the value of information depends on its quality, and its usefulness depends on our ability to communicate it successfully. As activists, we can't sit and wait for people to wade through sixty-page reports. To influence people we must make strong arguments and communicate them using strong evidence. Well-timed, rigorous and well-presented information is the greatest asset activists possess
