RESULTS National Conference Calls

Listen to Recordings of Our Monthly National Conference Calls

As part of their advocacy work, RESULTS staff and volunteers from around the country gather each month on a national conference call. The call includes guest speakers, legislative updates, advocacy trainings, and shares from different groups about the actions they have taken and successes they have achieved. Not only is the monthly call useful in keeping our network updated on the latest legislative actions and news, it is a chance for our volunteers to connect with each other regularly around our common goal of creating the political will for change.

Each month includes a U.S. poverty-focused call and a global poverty-focused call. Both calls are on the second Saturday of each month, with the U.S. Poverty Call beginning at 12:30pm ET and the Global Poverty Call beginning at 2:00 pm ET. Below are the links to recordings (MP3 format) of our most recent calls you can listen to through your computer. You can also find the recordings and descriptions of the calls on our RESULTS Musings blog and download podcasts of the calls on line at iTunes or by searching for RESULTS Musings in your iTunes store.
