Whether you work on the local, state or federal levels, the need for coalitions will play an important role in your success. Simply put, a coalition is a temporary alliance or partnering of groups in order to achieve a common purpose or to engage in joint activity. Forming coalitions with other groups of similar values, interests, and goals allows members to combine their resources and become more powerful than when they each acted alone.
