Introducing a (New) Member of Congress to RESULTS

Engage:

Congressman Smith, thank you so much for meeting with me. I’m excited to tell you about the organization I volunteer with called RESULTS. We’re committed to ending extreme poverty in our lifetime and hope to work closely with you.

Problem:

We view poverty as a non-partisan issue. When the parties have worked together, we’ve made incredible progress on global AIDS, TB, and malaria; basic education; Head Start; and access to healthcare here in the U.S. But there is much so more to be done.

Illustrate Solution:

RESULTS is a group of passionate advocates working for the end of poverty both here and abroad. We work with our members of Congress to create legislation that offers smart, cost-effective, and compassionate solutions. We strive to build solid relationships with our legislators while also getting poverty the attention it deserves in the media and in our communities.

Call to Action:

There will be important opportunities for this new Congress to work for real change for the end of poverty. I’d love to tell you about how RESULTS is working for this in our district/state. I would also like to hear your ideas on how to address poverty in the U.S. and around the world.
