SHOW: Mary Singer Albertson Knows how to get Results and the People who make things happen. Her slogan is “Be an advocate for people who have no voice”. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for… “Be the change you want to see in the world.
THIS EPISODE: Mary interviews Ken Patterson Director of Global Grassroots Advocacy at RESULTS, the power to end poverty.
Ken Patterson (RESULTS) and I discuss what we can do now that the election is over. We aren’t finished after we vote. We elected them and we need to tell them what we want them to do. A member of Congress said, “You elect us and then you abandon us. You don’t tell us what you want.”
RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together they use their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. Volunteers receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates. In time, volunteers learn to effectively advise policymakers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunity. With every hour of their time, volunteers multiply their impact through the enormous power of advocacy — whether it’s helping change policy to support millions of families putting food on the table or helping raise billions of dollars for the world’s most vulnerable children.
