Tina Rosenberg of the New York Times writes: In 1980, Daley-Harris founded RESULTS, with the mission of recruiting, training and supporting ordinary people to lobby Congress to reduce hunger and poverty. (He went on to teach his methods to the Citizens Climate Lobby and other groups.)
RESULTS secured a huge funding increase for vaccines and other anti-poverty programs. That in turn led to more investment from other countries. You may have heard that extreme poverty around the world has declined from 44 percent in 1990 to under 10 percent today. Results’ work is one reason.
