Activists Needed: Join the Fight Against U.S. Poverty in Memphis!

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

Some of our volunteer activists on Lobby Day!


We are looking to strengthen a volunteer, RESULTS chapter to fight U.S. poverty in your local area. Group meets twice a month, to learn, bond, and take meaningful action. Together, we'll strategize how to bring real change to federal policies in order to create economic mobility.

RESULTS offers hope and the possibility for ordinary citizens to make a difference. Volunteers can be a voice for change and challenge the unjust systems that create poverty! Our activists were instrumental in expanding health care, Head Start, and child care funding, as well as fighting off extensive and irresponsible cuts to anti-poverty programs like SNAP and critical tax credits.

Never advocated for something before? That’s ok! We’ll teach you how to be a powerful advocate and help you develop an understanding of the issues. Our activists and grassroots chapters meet with their members of Congress, educate their communities, and generate media coverage. This is an opportunity to create real change, and to be on the front lines of the poverty fight.

The skills you will learn as a volunteer will not only help you become a powerful agent for change, but will also help you in your daily life to become a better speaker, writer, and informed citizen.

There is no cost to you, just a commitment of 3-5 hours a month, continuous training and support from RESULTS staff. Together, we can build ladders out of poverty and create a society where opportunity is not a privilege for those with the means, but a right for all to thrive.
