A virtual 2020 RESULTS International Conference is an interactive online event that brings together RESULTS volunteers and those new to RESULTS. This will be an engaging event held entirely online rather than at a physical location.
So, what will a virtual conference look like? We’ll have more details to share in the coming weeks, but here’s what you can count on:
Interactive sessions on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, including exciting, high level speakers, and advocacy skill workshops.
Actions to make sure the pandemic response prioritizes people experiencing poverty in the U.S., and globally, and to protect critical programs in this crisis.
Coordinated advocacy, with support to meet virtually with members of Congress and staff the week of the digital conference.
A forum for conversation and sharing between advocates.
Celebration of our 40th anniversary, and looking to our future.
If you’d like to participate in advocacy meetings during the week of action, the deadline to sign up is May 26 to allow enough time to prepare together. If you are not planning to participate in these meetings, the sign up deadline for the virtual conference is Thursday, June 18 at 11:59pm.

If you have made the reservation on the Hilton website or by calling Hilton directly, then your reservation is cancellable and refundable. Please contact the Capitol Hilton directly to cancel your reservation, you can modify/cancel your reservation here or by calling 1-202-393-1000.

This pandemic is exposing just how far the world has to go toward protecting the rights and needs of everyone – and just what an important role advocates like you can play. Many of you are already in action to shape the policy response to the pandemic, and there’s a lot of work ahead to make sure people experiencing poverty aren’t left out. Learn more here about some of what we have planned.
The fellowship is still recruiting for its next class which will begin in December (previously scheduled for May). The application will close on September 30th, 2020. For more information please go to results.org/fellowship.
Fortunately, RESULTS knows how to advocate with Congress remotely/virtually, as most of us don’t live in Washington, DC. We will be supporting groups, Free Agents, and those who are new to RESULTS to organize and hold effective remote meetings with congressional offices around RESULTS’ Week of Action (June 22-25).
If you are a member of a group or a Free Agent, you are already connected with the resources that will help you prepare for virtual advocacy. Keep in touch with your group leader or your Free Agents group. If you are not already a member of a group or are a free agent, contact us at [email protected].
