The virtual 2021 RESULTS International Conference will be an interactive online event that brings together RESULTS volunteers and those new to RESULTS. This is an engaging event held entirely online rather than at a physical location.
So, what does a virtual conference look like?
Interactive sessions on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13, 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.
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.
Fortunately, RESULTS knows how to advocate with Congress remotely/virtually, as most of us don’t live in Washington, DC. We will support groups, Free Agents, and those who are new to RESULTS to organize and hold effective remote meetings with congressional offices around RESULTS’ Advocacy Week (June 14-18).
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].
