There are a few kinds of working groups: '''Infrastructure''', '''Activity''' and '''Issue''' working groups. The '''Infrastructure''' working groups primarily support '''Issue''' working groups. '''Issue''' working groups do on-going work around a particular topic. '''Activity''' working groups also often support '''Issue''' working groups, but not alway, and are usually focused on one type of work, like [[MACC Jail and Court Support|jail support]], [[MACC Emergency Action|being present at street actions and rallies]], or [[MACC Information & Outreach Project|organizing around learning and outreach]].

There are a few different ways working groups communicate, some use Signal, some use email lists, some use other online chat platforms. There are pros and cons of each! In MACC, most working groups organize on Signal threads. If using e-mail, it's recommended to use a listserv that people can leave or join easily, such at Gaggle, rather than just an email chain.
