The International Conference: Activists Speaking to Our Congress for the End of Poverty!
RESULTS partners from all over the country and RESULTS allies from all over the world have converged on Washington, DC, to advocate for the end of hunger and the worst aspects of poverty! Even RESULTS activists back home in their districts are partnering with the conference to dial into meetings by phone or arrange other powerful actions for the end of summer.
During this busy week, we don’t have a conventional update for you. Instead, take a look at our inspiring blog and plan to be with us for an inspiring July national grassroots conference call which will include domestic partners and will feature your stories!
It would be simpler to follow the easy and familiar path of personal ambition and private gain. It is more comfortable to sit content in the easy approval of friends and of neighbors than to risk the friction and controversy that comes with public affairs. It is easier to fall in step with the slogans of others than to march to the beat of the internal drummer — to make and stand on judgments of your own. And it is far easier to accept and to stand on the past, than to fight for the answers of the future.
