Transcript of NGO's

Government NGO's
Grassroots Business NGOs & Grassroots organisations
in the US
Step 1

Define your movement. Start by thinking about what issues will and won't be
addressed by your movement. Try to focus on a certain issue or even write up a kind
of list of items or "manifesto" you can use while growing your group. Step 2

Get body. Reach out to others, whether through flyers, word of mouth, sponsorship, or
public events. Get a number of people in your court and let the ball keep rolling. Step 3

Find ways of keeping in touch. Use email, phone lists, or regular meetings to keep
your members on the same page. Step 4

Delegate. Find some way to appoint committees to handle the specific tasks of the
group. If your grassroots group grows into something that could be called a
"movement", it's too big for one person to be in charge of everything. Let smaller
groups move within the larger body of the movement to draft actions or address
specific concerns. Step 5

When you have achieved critical mass, make your presence known. Whether through
the Internet, local government, the print media, or other venues, show the world that
you exist to get publicity for your causes and to attract others to your side. National Smokers Alliance "Brooks Brothers riot" "Al Gore's Penguin Army" Working Families for Wal-Mart Grassroots movements organize and lobby through procedures including:

maintains a non-governmental position, with no need for a government council. They are also
known as civil society organizations. A non-profit organization uses its extra funds for the purpose of the organization, rather than
dividing it between the shareholders and the owners of the organization. Examples of NPOs
are public arts organizations, trade unions and charitable organizations. The early activity of non-governmental organizations:
end of 19th c.: mistrust of big corporations; their increasing power perceived as a danger for democracy and natural environment;
