2010 International Conference

IC logo

RESULTS activists from across the U.S. and around the world came to Washington, DC, in June, 2010, to celebrate 30 years of RESULTS and be part of shaping a future without poverty. Attendees were trained to be powerful advocates, heard from some of the world’s foremost experts on our global and domestic issues, and met with members of Congress and their staff on Capitol Hill. We also partnered with Citizens Climate Lobby, a RESULTS-style lobby organization working on global climate change. View photos from the conference.
