Correlates of Power in Citizen Organizations
Organized citizen action has been a hallmark of American democracy (Tocqueville, 1840/1961). At the neighborhood level, residents have frequently formed organizations to deal with common needs.

Citizen organizations have therefore been among the most important ways through which citizens have helped to improve neighborhoods.
