Empowering Grassroots Activists
At RESULTS we know that voting is only the starting point of civic participation. Active citizenship happens all year, every year.

Our method of training, coaching, and supporting individuals helps them overcome resignation about their ability to make a difference. It also inspires them to speak powerfully and take strategic and effective actions.

The success of our work proves that ordinary citizens can create extraordinary change.
