Well, these folks are a bit too reformist for my taste, but ...

I've volunteered for this national group during the past 10 years and have enjoyed it immeasurably. It's called RESULTS (www.ResultsUSA.org), and I'm the Manhattan Group Leader and a regional coordinator for the national organization. We're always looking for new members.

What we do: We meet with politicians in NY and in Washington, D.C., lobbying on issues related to hunger, poverty reduction and education in the United States. We also write op-ed articles and meet once a month for a national conference call with other volunteers to get updated on new issues. Once a year, there's a national conference in Washington, D.C. where hundreds of volunteers from all over the country meet.

We've already made a huge impact funding for domestic hunger, poverty, and early education programs and have the support of many politicians -- including Hillary Clinton (see our "What People Are Saying About Us" page at www.ResultsUSA.org). If you're interested in getting involved in lobbying, writing or politics, this is certainly a great "hands-on" introduction.

If you're interested in joining the NYC chapter of RESULTS, check out our website at http://www.ResultsUSA.org. Then give me a call at (212) 987-6768. This is a great non-profit action group that requires only very little time (3 hours a month!) to make a HUGE impact on millions of people's lives.

Thanks!
