About

RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together, we use our voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to global poverty.

We're building a new RESULTS group in Little Rock to advocate on global poverty, and we're looking for passionate volunteers to join our team! We have already gotten Congressman Womack of AR to cosponsor the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (video below), which will end preventable deaths of moms (300,000/yr) and kids (5,900,000/yr) by 2035!

Here is a recent oped an amazing Little Rock RESULTS volunteer just got published (p.9): https://issuu.com/arkansastimesvisitorsguide/docs/arkansas_times_september_15_2016

As a RESULTS volunteer, you can help us achieve our vision of a world where every child has the same chance to survive and thrive, no matter where s/he is born, whether it's zipcode or country code. RESULTS volunteers achieve this vision through powerful advocacy, meeting face to face with members of Congress, engaging with local media, and communicating about these issues in our community.

You will receive training, support, and inspiration to become a skilled advocate. In time, volunteers learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that will improve access to education, health, and economic opportunity.

We've had big wins recently, and we have big plans for the rest of the year! Our next virtual meeting is Tuesday September 27th at 6;30PM.
