The social campaign "You have the vote, you have a choice" which has been carried out for a few years by the School for Leaders Association and the Stefan Batory Foundation seated in Warsaw is aimed at promoting active attitudes in managing local issues, extending civil knowledge and awareness and encouraging active participation in local life. Therefore the campaign promotes actions which are aimed at building civil society on the local level - in a certain commune, town or city. This paper is an analysis of the activity of a particular local organization acting in strictly defined social and political conditions as a non-governmental organization (association) taking part in a nationwide social campaign "You have the vote, you have a choice".
