First 100 Days

We’re not waiting around to see what policymakers decide to do in 2021 – we’re getting in right away to help set a bold agenda against poverty.

More COVID relief is desperately needed, and millions of people in this country and around the world are facing the consequences for Washington’s inaction. We will continue to push, as we have for months, for an urgently needed response. But we won’t be content with just emergency relief: we need an equitable response to the pandemic, and a long-term vision to bring an end to poverty and the systemic oppression that creates it.

During the first 100 days of 2021, we want to meet with every member of Congress we cover – that means every single U.S. Senate office and three quarters of the House of Representatives.

Our First 100 Days Kickoff event was on Feb. 6, 2021

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.

Our advocates on meeting with Congress

I did it. I voted. I went to my polling place early and got my “I voted” sticker because I didn’t want to risk not being able to vote on November 3 due to long lines. But voting is just the beginning. What’s next is following up with our elected officials, moving them into action, and keeping them accountable.

Throughout my life, I’ve always lived paycheck to paycheck. Right now, I am one personal emergency away from not being able to afford my groceries or pay my rent. A lot of people around the country and the world are forced to live on the edge like that.

Last July, I was making my way across Capitol Hill, attending meetings with Minnesota’s congressional offices. I was nervous. It was my first time in DC, and my first time on the Hill. But then I bumped into a member of Congress in a hallway – and she recognized me.

Five years ago, I was sitting at home, feeling like I had no way of making change with my members of Congress. I was frustrated. I wanted to open up their perspectives and have conversations with them about issues I care about.

Some kids look forward to their birthdays, or holidays. When I was young, my brother and I looked forward to tax time.
