Front organizations

Front organizations are credible cover operations for other activities which are illegal, unfashionable or philosophically eccentric. Some front organizations use issues of genuine public concern or needs for social service as a springboard to advance their particular causes. Others use a cover of providing needed services in order to perform or to fund illegal activities.
