Maybe you’ve been feeling the urge to do something – but you aren’t sure what. Maybe you feel overwhelmed by this political moment. Perhaps you’ve thought about being an advocate, but you just don’t know where to start.
As a RESULTS advocate, you can make a difference right now.
Our volunteer advocates come from all walks of life but share a desire to stand up for issues of poverty, be heard, and make an impact. At RESULTS, we teach you how to do that. We teach you how to be an advocate.
Raise your voice. Have a say in the policies that impact millions of people here in the U.S. and around the world.
The everyday violence and injustice of poverty, systemic racism, and inequality are rooted in public policy. What discriminatory policies have created, equitable and just policies can help change – but only when we stand up for them. Voting is not the only opportunity to influence these issues. As an advocate, you can help influence decisions well beyond election day.
RESULTS volunteers are effective advocates for solutions to poverty.
With every hour of their time, RESULTS volunteers multiply their impact through the enormous power of advocacy — whether it’s helping change policy to support millions of families putting food on the table or helping raise billions of dollars for the world’s most vulnerable children.
As a volunteer you will:
Develop relationships with your members of Congress so that when you get in touch, they listen
Meet face-to-face with your members of Congress and their staff
Write persuasive opinion pieces and get published in the media
Be part of a movement of people committed to ending the systemic and structural injustices that drive poverty
No advocacy experience? No problem.
RESULTS provides training and coaching to all of our advocates. Sign up to volunteer and you’ll receive information on how to register for our New Advocate Orientation and Training.
