About us

RESULTS is a movement of passionate and committed people whose mission is to create the political will to end poverty in the United States and around the world. RESULTS empowers individuals to exercise their personal and political power for change by mobilizing the voices of grassroots constituent advocates throughout its nationwide network to leverage public investment in programs and improved policies that reduce poverty and inequality. Over the last 40 years, RESULTS advocates have been building strong relationships with members of Congress, engaging with the media, and collaborating with an array of partners throughout the country and around the world.

RESULTS identifies the highest-impact policy solutions to poverty and catalyzes an advocacy movement that secures the political leadership, focus, and resources to get the job done. With this strategy and cutting-edge partnerships—comprised of partners across five continents and a network of volunteers in all 50 states—RESULTS has helped to secure hundreds of billions of dollars in new funding for programs and policies that reduce poverty and inequality. It has helped pass legislation that has saved the lives and protected the health of millions of people in low-income countries, helped millions of families globally move out of extreme poverty, and allowed people in the United States to put food on the table, remain stably housed, and move out of poverty.
