Mission Statement

ur vision is of a world where the devastating impacts of poverty no longer cripple the ability of individuals and families to sustain themselves and contribute their talents to the world in which they live -- where all people have a fair chance at success. But it takes citizens pressuring their leaders for effective anti-poverty programs to receive the attention, policies, and funding they need.

That’s why RESULTS and RESULTS Educational Fund (REF) stand out. Our mission is to create the public and political will to end poverty by empowering individuals to exercise their personal and political power for change. We combine the voices of our passionate grassroots activists with strategic grass-tops efforts to leverage millions of dollars for programs and improved policies that give low-income people the health, education, and opportunity they need to thrive.

Description

Mobilizing around key legislative opportunities that will have the greatest impact on the lives of low-income people. This can range from supporting members of Congress in generating bipartisan support for anti-poverty legislation to helping legislators craft bills that will benefit the poorest.
Empowering ordinary people to become powerful voices for the end of poverty with a unique training and support system. RESULTS has grassroots chapters in over 100 locations in the U.S., which form one of the most engaged and effective grassroots networks in the world.
Advocating for policies and legislation that create or safeguard effective solutions to poverty, make programs run more efficiently and effectively, and extend coverage to those who need it.
