We’ll cover the basics of what drives motivation, learn basic motivational interviewing skills, and practice using those skills with our members of Congress through roleplays.

August 2021 Together Women Rise Webinar: Vaccine Leadership Needed

The August Together Women Rise advocacy webinar with RESULTS focused on vaccines access and the need for leadership. We will not end the pandemic until everyone, everywhere has access to the COVID-19 vaccines. Until we do this, people  in low-income countries will continue to suffer and die, and the risk of new variants emerging will grow. This is both a health crisis and a moral crisis as only around 1% of people on the entire African continent have been vaccinated while more wealthy countries have vaccination rates of 40-60%. We must act by writing letters to the editor this month.
