About

The election results are in and in January we will have a new Administration and Congress that will be tasked with making critical decisions impacting the lives of people in Saint Louis and across the world. Many of us are asking ourselves "what can I do to make sure that fighting poverty is a priority for the next Congress?"

RESULTS has been answering that question for the past 36 years, working with every President and member of Congress, Republican, Democrat, and everything in between, to educate them about issues we care about, advocate on solutions that will benefit millions living in poverty, and inspire them to be the champions we need them to be to fight poverty.

While we are unsure of what specific decisions these new leaders will make, we are confident in what we can and need to do as citizens to influence those decisions. We'd love to invite you to this movement.

Learn how you personally can have direct impact on world-changing decisions Congress makes about poverty. RESULTS volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things! We use letter-writing, phone calls, media writing, and - most of all - face-to-face lobbying skills to influence members of Congress to make decisions to end poverty. You'll learn about our group and our strategies before having the opportunity to take a quick and easy action yourself before you go home!

Never participated in citizen advocacy before? No problem! We're here to teach you how!

This event is hosted by the global poverty group. We will also be able to connect you with advocates from our U.S. poverty group!
