At the Islands Trust, advocacy is the act of influencing and seeking cooperation with other agencies and decision-makers.

Writing letters is only one way we advocate and cooperate. To learn more see the Advocacy Program page. All letters below are sent on behalf of the Islands Trust Council or Executive Committee unless otherwise noted.
