China has a large number of civic organizations. They carry out their activities independently in accordance with the Constitution and the law. Local branches of these organizations are spread throughout urban and rural areas, serving to unite workers, young people, women and other persons of all walks of life nationwide. They participate in national and local political life and play an important role in coordinating social and public affairs and safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of the people.
