By definition, the grassroots is the bottom of the political pyramid, opposite the "establishment," which controls the top.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
