Grassroots activities are those that influence legislation or stimulate change through the ability to persuade or change public opinion. It involves making allies of people who can effect change, and persuading others to take your concerns seriously. Raising awareness about an issue and advocating for policies and programs that will provide solutions requires a clear sense of purpose, tenacity, and organization.
