The consequences of early childhood malnutrition are devastating and permanent, but they are also entirely preventable. RESULTS works to secure smart, sustainable investments in nutrition and nutrition policy that help break the cycle of poverty.
We celebrated COVID relief successes and looked at the 2021 campaigns on global education and nutrition. We learned about the appropriations process and tools available to us. We took action together online and prepared for taking deeper action with congressional staff.
Every year, Congress decides how to spend the money in the U.S. federal budget. RESULTS urges our lawmakers to support issues that build the foundation to end poverty – health, education, and economic opportunity. These are memos you can use to make FY22 requests of your members of Congress.
The February DFW/RESULTS webinars were fun. We learned: 1) why meetings with Congress are our most important advocacy tactic, 2) how to schedule a congressional meeting, 3) what makes a good meeting. Then we planned a meeting and did a live practice. It was great!
