Join the Fight Against Global Poverty!

RESULTS is seeking passionate advocates to become part of our movement to end global poverty. Volunteers will promote long term solutions to poverty by advocating for access to health, education, and economic opportunity so that all people will have a chance to reach their full potential.

Since 1990, the number of children dying from preventable causes across the world has been cut by more than half, millions more kids in low income countries are going to school, and we're on the path to ending AIDS. RESULTS has played an important role in these successes through citizen advocacy.

But we know there is still more work to do. This year, 5.9 million kids will die of a preventable cause before their 5th birthday, 289,000 women will die from a preventable pregnancy related cause, and millions of girls will miss out on their chance to go to school - simply because they were born in a low income community.

For the first time in history, we are faced with the fact that we have all of the resources needed to end these problems, ensuring that all kids are healthy, in school, and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The question isn't can we do this but will we do what is needed to make this possibility a reality.


RESULTS Iowa is a group of passionate, committed community members who are willing to step up to the challenge of addressing global poverty. We meet twice a month, get updates on pressing global issues, learn powerful advocacy skills, and most important, take action together to make a difference.

Actions include:

  • Meeting face to face with members of Congress
  • Writing pieces for the media
  • Writing letters and making phone calls to decision makers
  • Hosting community education events and calling on others in the community to take action with us

If you want to make a difference on global issues from Iowa and are looking for a way to get connected we'd love to welcome you to our team. Contact Amanda Beals for more information: (314)737-6901
