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! We have already moved our Senators and media to act!

We meet every 2nd Monday evening of the month at 6:30pm at the Kanawha Public Library. This next meeting will be Monday March 13th at 7:30 instead of the usual 6:30, in the John Ray Room on the 3rd floor across from the elevator. Please email Judy to let her know you're coming at annasmomjudy@yahoo.com.
