Interest groups help stimulate interest in public affairs. Interest groups raise awareness of public affairs mostly by developing and promoting those policies they favor and by opposing those they see as threats to their interests.

Interest groups, like labor unions, manufacturers' associations, health advocates, etc. bring their causes to the public's attention. They work to defeat organizations whose causes are against theirs. For instance, health advocates vigorously oppose the tobacco industry.
