RESULTS Outreach Heads South
As the Hollies said, “the road is long, with many a winding turn,” but along the way, I was fortunate enough to meet with many, many people who care about those who struggle in our country to meet basic needs and put food on the table. Their passion, their drive, their willingness to learn and do what we do at RESULTS – that is so very hopeful to me.
I visited three cities and crossed four states in the South last week. I started in the Magic City, Birmingham, AL, where I got to talk poverty, share stories, and plan for a strong RESULTS presence with some very bright and passionate young women. I also got to check in with Birmingham’s fantastic global group leader, Cale Campbell, who has been tireless in bringing folks together to do great work on our global issues.
All three cities are welcoming new volunteers. These are really fantastic folks who are learning how to build and use their political power to fight poverty. You can join them. In addition, I'll be helping lead presentations to share advocacy skills and start new RESULTS groups in Baton Rouge (March 29) and Colorado Springs (April 9). If you live in any of these areas and want to get connected or learn more, please contact me at [email protected] – together, we can do incredible things!
