About

After the election, many of us are wondering what's next and looking for ways to engage. We want to ensure that recent social progress made remains. RESULTS is a bipartisan organization that has been around for 36 years and worked within under a number of potentially challenging political climates, and achieved remarkable results!

RESULTS is a movement of regular, committed, everyday people (like you and me) who use our voices to help bring an END to POVERTY - in the US and globally. As volunteers, we are trained, supported, and inspired to speak with decision makers - members of Congress and the media - to encourage them to take action to expand access to health, education, and economic opportunity for all people. Over time, we learn to advocate powerfully for some of the most important issues of our time, and together, we realize the incredible power we have to change the world.

We have 110 chapters across the country, small groups grounded in our local communities that are a part of a global solidarity movement. We work in coordination to ensure that all people - especially children - can care for their most basic needs so that they can survive and thrive and reach their full potential.

We are forming a chapter in Charleston, West Virginia!

Folks have been meeting the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 6:30pm at Taylor Books, though they might choose a different location soon so contact us. At the next meeting on Tuesday Novemeber 22nd, we'll learn about some issues that RESULTS Charleston activists and others have already had success on, learn skills and strategy, and take a quick action to help END global poverty and plan for the future together.

Come on out to learn how you can join local citizens to be a part of the solution to this globally and act locally in West Virginia! We would love to meet you!
