Building a Grassroots Network
Questions to be Answered When Building a Grassroots Network
Grassroots networks are devoted to increasing participation by people sharing similar views on issues facing their society. If you want to have an impact on these issues at any level, local, state or national, answering the questions listed below will help you to achieve your goal. You can do this as a citizen, as a member of a community group, as an employee or executive in a business, as a member of a trade or professional group, as a member of a public-interest group, or as a participant in a private-sector interest group. The place from which you start is less important than your willingness to reach out to find and accept others who share your goals and objectives.

Grassroots networks and coalitions are about creating a role for everyone to participate and contribute something to reaching the goal. Matching a willing person's skills to the needs of the task is what builds a grassroots network.
Answering the questions below will get your grassroots network started in the right direction.
