RESULTS, created in 1980, is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together we use our voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. The Grassroots Impact Team provides training, support, and inspiration to help our national network of volunteers become skilled advocates. In time, volunteers learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve equitable access to education, health, and economic opportunity.

RESULTS knows that poverty cannot end as long as oppression exists, so we commit to opposing all forms of oppression and we pledge to create space for all voices, including those of us who are currently experiencing poverty.
