We didn’t wait around to see what policymakers decided to do in 2021 – we got in right away to help set a bold agenda against poverty.
This spring, RESULTS advocates secured more than 300 meetings with Congress, including reaching all 100 Senate offices in 100 days. But we’re not stopping now.
We’ll build on these first 100 days, pushing Congress toward policies that actively undo the forces of racism, colonialism, and oppression that drive poverty and injustice. We will keep making sure policymakers understand that poverty was a crisis long before the pandemic – and making sure they do what it takes to bring it to an end.
We gathered as a national RESULTS community to hear from speakers, strategize, and prepare to take our message straight to Congress. Click here for a wrap up of the event on our blog. Click here for session recordings and slide presentations.
