"I have always been taught to stand up for the rights and needs of others. I became an advocate for RESULTS because I want to use my voice to create change."
– Jalileh Garcia, RESULTS Advocate
Take Action: Ask Senators & Reps. to Cosponsor and Lead on the Reach Act!
RESULTS International Conference – Participate From Home!
If You're Attending . . .
We are committed to getting this legislation passed. Keep up your excellent work.
As of July 10, we have 41 states and 167 legislators showing up on the House version of the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (H.R.4022) and 22 states and 28 legislators showing up on the Senate version of the bill (S.1730). This is due in no small part to your advocacy.
This legislation will make U.S. efforts on maternal and child health the best they can be through coordination, efficiency, and bold goals. But we need even more cosponsors and champions in Congress to move this bill. Get senators and representatives to cosponsor the Reach Act, and if they are already cosponsors, move them up the Champion Scale by asking them to advocate for and lead on the issue. Current cosponsors have a real stake in this legislation – encourage them to help gain the support that's necessary.
1. National Grassroots Webinar Schedule for July/August. There will be no National Grassroots Webinar in July due to the International Conference. But mark your calendars for a joint national grassroots webinar on Saturday, August 11 focused on how we're going to see that our issues show up during the mid-term election process. Watch for more details.
3. Friends and Family Fundraising Campaign Wraps Up. $27,708 in two months. 184 donations. Participation from 29 states, plus DC. Many of these donors are brand new to the RESULTS family. Bravo, all – wonderful accomplishment!
