RESULTS

Posted by chads on November 17, 2006

RESULTS is a “nonprofit grassroots advocacy organization committed to creating the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty.” There seems to be an emphasis on microcredit and health, withmore than 800 volunteers in 100 communities in the US.

There are RESULTS groups in Provo and Salt Lake City, Utah; I went to my first meeting in Provo on Saturday. Here are a few of the highlights:

Worlds AIDS day is December 1, and we will be submitting a several letters to the editor addressing the need for more tuberculosis funding.

Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for inpiring the microcredit movement.

Meetings, consisting mostly of conference calls and committments to action, are held monthly. The next meeting and conference call will be on Saturday, December 9 at 12 noon at 2198 JFSB (new building west of the library at BYU). We hope you’ll join us if you live in Utah Valley!
