It could be you.
Don’t wait to find out their priorities – be the one to set the agenda on Capitol Hill.
Tell your lawmakers that ending poverty here and everywhere should be at the top of their to-do list. That means seriously addressing the affordable housing crisis and the racial wealth divide in this country. That means creating economic policies, including a fair tax code, that prioritize low-income people. That means investing in programs to end diseases that are a cause and consequence of poverty around the world, like tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.
So, don’t wait: schedule a meeting with your member of Congress. Stand up and fight for the country and world you want to live in. Set the agenda.
Feeling nervous about meeting with your member of Congress or not sure how to frame your request? Here’s some advice from David Jolly, who represented Florida’s 13th congressional district from 2014 to 2017.
We sat down with Shams Al-Badry, a RESULTS volunteer in Lincoln, Nebraska, during the 2018 RESULTS International Conference to talk about how she’s evolved as an advocate and why she’s so committed to her work with RESULTS.
“I never dreamed I would be on this stage,” said Kiran Waqar as she officially kicked off the 2017 RESULTS International Conference in Washington, DC, before an audience of hundreds last July. A few days later, she would meet face-to-face with her senators and confidently explain why they should support education initiatives in low-income countries around the world.
