Grassroots are the foundation of good governance; an informed and mobilized populace of citizens will keep lawmakers honest and attentive
to their needs. At Checkmate, we build coalitions. This involves meeting and interacting with organizations (health care providers, business and consumer organizations, etc.) who have similar interests to those of your organization. Building these coalitions and networks is an essential component of successful governmental advocacy, and a cornerstone of Checkmate Strategies.

Some grassroots client work has included:

  • The American Tort Reform Association
  • Superfund Reform
  • The United/Delta Airline merger
  • PBM legislation
  • Tobacco Buyout for Farmers
  • Repeal of the Federal Estate Tax
  • Arctic Power
  • Stand Up for Steel
