Tavis SmileyI am honored to announce that Tavis Smiley – broadcaster, author, advocate, and powerful voice for change – will join me at the opening plenary of the RESULTS/RESULTS Educational Fund 2014 International Conference on June 21 here in Washington, DC! Please continue reading for a special invitation from Tavis:

There is both a moral obligation and an economic imperative for public and private sectors to work side by side to build a bridge for those who are facing poverty today and those who may be down the road. Recently, my foundation launched Ending Poverty: America's Silent Spaces, a four-year initiative to examine barriers and identify solutions to alleviate poverty in the United States. The initiative helps advance action against domestic poverty by engaging and mobilizing individuals, communities, and organizations to identify innovative and community-based solutions. We must be willing to share responsibilities and resources to achieve sustained results in alleviating poverty. Working together is the only way. I look forward to seeing you at the RESULTS International Conference for this important conversation.

Also, please note: For young leaders ages 18-28, we've extended the application deadline for the REAL Change Fellowship. Please be sure to have your application submitted no later than April 15th.

If you have questions about the REAL Change Fellowship, please contact Carly Pildis.
