RESULTS advocates for policies that increase access to affordable rental housing, support homeownership, and tackle the racial wealth divide in the U.S.
A new report confirms that the priorities RESULTS advocates are pushing for, like increased funding for housing vouchers, are proven solutions to solving poverty nationwide – especially as part of a broader policy strategy.
On a day when more than a dozen Washington experts were there to testify, the person this member of Congress was thinking about was back in Omaha – his constituent Fran, a long-time RESULTS advocate.
On a cold, wet weekend in February, 51 young REAL Change Fellows and alumni hailing from 24 states gathered together for the REAL Change Policy Summit. This RESULTS fellowship program provides training and community for advocates between ages 18-30. This year’s class had landed in Washington, DC for three days of learning, organizing, and advocacy.
With 43 million people in the United States living below the poverty line, members of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival came to Washington so that members of Congress and staff could hear directly from those currently experiencing poverty.
Racial wealth inequality today has roots dating back to slavery and is manifested in everything from disparities in education access, entrepreneurship and even health outcomes. While there are many ideas about what it will take to close the racial wealth gap, it is generally unclear which ideas would effectively eliminate the racial wealth divide.
