How about "engagement"?  The corrected first paragraph could then read:

Advocacy is a critical part of supporting a movement like Free Software.
 It is part education, part engagement.  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.

Now, I have a problem with editing some of the stuff in the Advocacy
section of the site.  I wanted to change the FAQ title from "FAQ for
advocating Free Software" to "FAQ for advocating Free Software - English
version" but there is no edit button.  Perhaps Stef could lend a hand?

Shane, who is an idiot with this CMS stuff.
