Attend the RESULTS International Conference
This article is part of Advocacy Basics: Growing as an Advocate.
Every summer, RESULTS hosts an International Conference for the end of poverty. Volunteers come to the heart of Washington, DC, and experience firsthand what it is like to walk the halls of Congress and meet with their legislators about the most effective solutions for the end of poverty.
Attending the International Conference is one the best ways to see RESULTS in action, meet other amazing volunteers from around the country and the world, sharpen one’s lobbying skills, and hear from some of the world’s foremost experts on our domestic and global issues.
Many groups and volunteers start planning early in the year to come to the conference. Some hold garage sales and raffles to raise money to send members of their group to Washington.
