Interest Groups

Each of us can be (and probably is) a member of one or more association(s)/organization(s)/group(s). From your Internet browser, type in search terms such as “associations,” “organizations,” etc., to find one of which you are or might (now or in the future) be a member (e.g., based on your religious beliefs, work goals, hobby(ies), interest(s), etc.).

First, name the association/organization/group and provide its URL. Next, describe its goal(s), mission(s), etc. Then, provide information concerning various aspects of the group (e.g., does it have membership dues; by what means does it communicate its message to members, the general public, and others; and, most importantly, what, if any, effort(s) does it engage in to influence governmental policies; etc.).
