Advocacy Month

The weekend of June 4, 2022, RESULTS will gather online for our next virtual International Conference. That weekend kicks off over a month of congressional advocacy, where we’ll meet with members of Congress and congressional aides across the country between May 30 and July 8.

Some groups will meet in-person with local congressional offices, and others may opt for virtual meetings. The Memorial Day and Fourth of July recesses will give us more opportunities to meet directly with our representatives and senators at home. And from June 12 to 14, we’ll have a small DC in-person event with delegates from across the country (see details here).
