A coalition describes "when multiple groups and organisations come together to work on a campaign, they often opt to collaborate together in a coalition. Coalitions, however, have garnered a reputation for causing campaigners headaches due to their frequently slow, bureaucratic and top-down decision-making processes. Networked coalitions, also called 'networked campaigns', harness the power of networks to develop more agile, dynamic and distributed campaigning coalitions that have proven themselves to be remarkably effective at building and channelling collective power." -Blueprints for Change [1]

For example, groups, organizers and communities impacted by Canadian banks investment practices have formed a coalition which includes but is not limited to: Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs, LeadNow, Stand.Earth, Greenpeace Canada, Banking on a Better Future, Decolonial Solidarity etc. [2]
