The umbrella organization gains credibility and electoral clout with the addition of a broad spectrum of policy oriented organizations. Each of these have demonstrated an ability to hear and respond to the will of the people and cultivate that understanding into policy ideas that are proven to work. These groups would be sought out for their guidance and support in defining every element and stepwise process for moving candidates from an everyday citizen with a desire to make a better world, into a public office holder and representative of the will of their constituents.
These groups would help the organization to formulate the endorsement criteria and identify how to negotiate win-win outcomes among the various blocs. Some of these could also be called upon to moderate the debates since they don't themselves, have candidates in the race.
