The China Philanthropy Leadership Initiative cordially invites you to help us spread the word and change the world through RESULTS!

If you are interested in health, education, and economic opportunity, this is an event you will not want to miss. RESULTS, including RESULTS Indianapolis, works to create the public and political will to end poverty, domestically as well as globally, by empowering individuals to exercise their personal and political power for change. They combine the voices of their passionate grassroots activists with strategic grass-tops efforts to leverage millions of dollars for programs and improved policies that give low-income people the health, education, and opportunity they need to thrive.

Besides giving an overview of what this group does, the presenter, a RESULTS Global Grassroots Associate based in Indianapolis, along with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) students that attended the RESULTS International Conference this year as RESULTS Emerging Activist Leaders through the RESULTS Real Change program, will detail highlights of that event, such as getting to meet the "Father of Microfinance" and RESULTS board member, Muhammad Yunus, and answer some questions, if time allows, on what it's like to be an activist in Washington D.C. as well as at home in Indiana.

While a lot of information will be given throughout the event regarding the organization's past and current efforts, the main purpose of this event is to detail how new chapters of this organization can be created domestically and abroad. This will include a basic discussion about the challenges non-democratic political systems can cause in developing the public and political will necessary to achieve the goals at hand.

We look forward to this opportunity to share important work being done and hope that you, and all those you invite, will join us in becoming the RESULTS necessary to put poverty in the history books once and for all!
