This summer marks 40 years since a dozen people got together in a Los Angeles living room to write letters to Congress. The story of how that living room meeting led to the RESULTS movement of today is a long one: we couldn’t fit it into an email. And the truth is, it isn’t one story.

Last week, the House Appropriations Committee reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to the Global Fund and other programs supported by RESULTS.
