Thanks for the copy editing! :)

Revised version:

Advocacy is a critical part of supporting a movement like Free Software.
 It is part education, part advertising.  It is where we share our
enthusiasm for Free Software and in the process make other people
enthusiastic about it too.  This is where every fellow can make a
significant contribution to the FSFE and share our ideals with computer
users, computer programmers and technology enthusiasts everywhere.

Advocacy is not just formal lectures.  You can advocate Free Software
when you talk to your coworkers, when you attend a conference and when
you visit a user group.  Advocacy is about engaging people with our
ideals in a positive and constructive manner.

There are no enforced rules to advocacy.  However, there are some tips
to help ensure that audiences are engaged and and goals are
accomplished.  This part of the fellowship site is intended to collect
our tips together so we can improve and coordinate our individual
advocacy.  If you have presentation notes, tips or guides you would like
to see added please email <INSERTEMAIL>.

I added the text and FAQ to the advocacy section of the site:

However, I'm not sure how to edit things.  I wanted to change the FAQ
title from "FAQ for advocating Free Software" to "FAQ for advocating
Free Software - English version"
