The March RESULTS-Sants Fe meeting will be Saturday, March 10, at 10:30 a.m., Unitarian Universalist Congregation Library. We will join the RESULTS national conference call from 10:30-11:30 followed by our local meeting at 11:30. Our guest speaker at 11:30 will be Ruth Hoffman, Director, Lutheran Advocacy Ministry-New Mexico, who will talk about why tax policy is a critical strategy for breaking the cycle of poverty and how we can best advocate for . RESULTS supports protecting and strengthening the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. The EITC is the largest poverty-reduction program in the U.S. The CTC helps low and middle income families with the cost of raising children. Both tax credits provide significant income support to families who working low-wage jobs. We invite you to join us!
RESULTS-Santa Fe is one of 110 chapters around the nation doing the same thing, making us a powerful force. RESULTS’ volunteers and staff provide training, information, and support to help you succeed. Once a month, RESULTS groups around the country join a national conference call with hundreds of other volunteers to be trained about issues, to practice our skills, and to commit to action in the following month. We then communicate directly to our elected officials by sending them letters and by meeting with our members of Congress and their staff face-to-face. We also generate media and organize events in our communities.
