Is advocating a community prerequisite?

This is a Milly Tamati inspired post, where she described the hard yet important work of advocating:

Part of the unwritten rules of my job as a founder and community builder is to advocate. Be a fierce support & a force for amplifying not only others, but the movement as a whole.

Clearing my schedule and responding to this essay is an act of advocating.

But as I proofread my copy for the 15th time, and hit 'send' to thousands of readers, I won't lie. I feel a bit nervous.

Even as someone who spends all their working days thinking about this conversation, I can struggle to put all this into words. We’re all working in an increasingly complicated, fluid system with so many factors at play.
