Advocate with us to lift our communities out of poverty and get familiar with our U.S. anti-poverty campaigns focused on health, education, and economic opportunity. Millions of families struggle to make ends meet and break out of the cycle of poverty. According to the United States Census Bureau, about 40.6 million people were living in poverty in 2016, a decline from 43.1 million in 2015. RESULTS works to expand opportunities for low-income individuals and families to move up the economic ladder. RESULTS is working to protect and expand existing programs (EITC, CTC, SNAP, Medicaid, CHIP) and to expand access to wealth in low-income communities and communities of color, which will help people living in poverty not only make ends meet, but also build a future in which they and their children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
~ SNAP is the first line of defense against hunger in America. By providing basic food assistance, SNAP helps put food on the table for millions of Americans and in 2015 lifted nearly 5 million people above the poverty line.
~ Lack of quality and affordable health care deepens and causes poverty for millions of families in the U.S. and around the world. Medicaid is the primary source of health coverage for over 60 million low-income individuals and families. The primary beneficiaries of Medicaid are children, people with disabilities, and the elderly.
~ There are opportunities for fellowships, meetings with members of Congress, writing letters to the editor and more.
