long description of table

The unorganized or poorly organized category includes groups which often form--if they take any form at all--only because others advocate on their behalf. While people in such groups may have much at stake in the political arena, they often do not recognize exactly how much or do not know what to do. Advocacy groups like those listed in the table help, but they seldom can provide the same level of activity or quality of representation that better organized and more politically focused groups obtain.
