Global Weekly Update July 23, 2012
International Conference Edition!
Fellow advocates for the end of hunger and the worst aspects of poverty are hard at work in Washington, DC. The camaraderie, learning, inspiration, and possibilities are inspiring. With Lobby Day coming up tomorrow (July 24), the energy is sky-high!
You, too, can be part of the action even if you’re not here with us on Capitol Hill. Join us in spirit and in action in the following ways:
1. Take our July action by using our online action. We are working for an AIDS-free generation through our advocacy of U.S. support for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Take action today!
2. Book an in-district meeting with your members of Congress for the August recess.
3. Follow the action on Facebook (search for “RESULTS”), and follow the conference buzz in real time on Twitter (@RESULTS_Tweets, #RESULTSConf).
4. Grab a hold of some interesting and informative background materials that, while produced for the conference, will be helpful to all advocates both now and in the near future.
Thank you for your voice, your passion, and your persistence. You are making a difference every day.
