FP-0500.8000System Advocacy Definition
Programs that seek changes in community conditions, structures or institutions when modifications in the service delivery system as a whole are required to ensure the adequate availability of essential community services, to contribute to human growth and development and to prevent unwitting support of conditions which are injurious to individuals and families who are residents. The objective of system advocacy is to make changes that are required to benefit the community as a whole rather than focusing on the needs of a particular individual, family or group of residents.
TD-1600.3100-330Immigrant Rights Groups Definition
Organizations that support the passage and enforcement of laws and other social measures which protect the rights and interests of individuals who have newly arrived in the country or which govern the process by which individuals and families are granted permission to immigrate.
YB-9000Young Adults Definition
Individuals who are generally between the ages of 18 and 25 depending on the ages that specific programs use for qualification.
Individuals from other countries who have come to the United States to live permanently.
YE-6500Lawful Permanent Residents Definition
Citizens of other countries who have been admitted to the United States and accorded the privilege of living there permanently. They may be issued immigrant visas overseas or adjusted to lawful permanent residence status once they reach the country.
Individuals who have fled their native country and have been given official permission by the government to settle permanently in another country. In the United States, refugee status is given to people who are outside their country of nationality and who are unwilling to return to that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on the individuals' race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. Entrant status allows the individual to remain in the U.S., but does not confer true "refugee" status. Asylees are refugees who apply for this status while already in the U.S. (on student or tourist visas, for example).

Individuals whose nationality, ethnic background and cultural ancestry are those of one of the countries and peoples of the continent of Africa.
