Discuss Poverty in America Face-to-Face with Your Member of Congress
Basic Health and Nutrition Programs Face Serious Threats in Congress

RESULTS is committed to creating the political will to end poverty. With 43 million Americans living below the poverty line, there is much work to do. A recent study from the Congressional Management Foundation shows that meeting face-to-face with members of Congress is the most effective way to influence them on the issues. These meetings can have a powerful impact on shaping anti-poverty policy in the U.S.

Use the alert below to request a meeting with your members of Congress to discuss how to end poverty in America. Once you get a meeting scheduled, RESULTS can help you get ready with messaging, materials, and coaching. For more information, please contact Jos Linn (jlinn@results.org).
