Dallas Global



RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together we use our voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty.  As volunteers, we receiver training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates.  In time, we learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to Health, Education and Economic Opportunity. Together we realize the incredible power we possess to use our voices to CHANGE THE WORLD.
