RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together they use their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty.
Volunteers receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates. In time, volunteers learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunity.
With every hour of their time, volunteers multiply their impact through the enormous power of advocacy — whether it’s helping change policy to support millions of families putting food on the table or helping raise billions of dollars for the world’s most vulnerable children.
Backed by the in-depth research and legislative expertise of staff, RESULTS advocates realize the incredible power they possess to use their voices to change the world.
“If you’re looking to bolster participatory democracy in the United States today, you’d be hard pressed to find better guidance than the experiences of RESULTS volunteers.”
David Bornstein, New York Times
“When we’re able to actually change public policy, it can have such a transformational impact for so many people. If you are looking to create real tangible change in a way that affects the broader community and not just at an individual level, advocacy is a fantastic way to do that.”
Rayna Castillo, RESULTS Volunteer
“Advocacy is a powerful way to approach problems. When we push for changes to policies, our impact is often multiplied many times over. That’s why I’m excited to be volunteering with RESULTS.”
Jacoby Gonzales, RESULTS Volunteer
We identify the highest-impact policy solutions to poverty and cultivate an advocacy movement that secures the political leadership, focus, and resources to get the job done.
Since 1980, we’ve changed dozens of government policies, helped pass legislation, and unlocked tens of billions of dollars in government funding for the fight against poverty. We set big, bold goals — advocating for what should be, not just what is easily achievable.
We have affiliates and partners across five continents, and a network of volunteers in all 50 states. We’re a non-partisan advocacy group comprised of RESULTS Educational Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, and RESULTS, a nonprofit 501(c)4 grassroots lobbying organization.
