When I first moved to Indiana in 2004 I was looking for ways to stay involved in the international issues that had grabbed my heart. In an interesting process of asking around to different national organizations I stumbled upon a local grassroots group called RESULTS. The first monthly meeting I attended was held at Mo & Johnny's in Broadripple.
RESULTS is mostly a grassroots advocacy organization. Each month concerned citizens gather to discuss and take action on a specific international issue. Most recently groups have been discussing and acting on the Farm Bill and TB-related legislation. It is pretty simple, devote one night a month to writing a member of Congress or a Letter to the Editor. Christy and I both have had letters published in the Indy Star.
We are trying to revitalize the Indianapolis group. We are looking for people who are willing to spend a few hours that could have a dramatic impact on our global neighbors. Please consider attending an informational meeting:
Old Bethel United Methodist Church, Indianapolis

I am looking for people who are passionate about making the difference in the world they've always dreamed of making; passionate about overcoming the cynicism and despair that surrounds us and becoming a beacon of hope in their community and world; and passionate about writing a new chapter in their life, one of civic courage. None of this is possible, however, without a transformation from "I can't make a difference" to "I can," from "I can't fight City Hall" to "I am City Hall." At its best, that is what RESULTS is about, civic transformation so individuals can work together to make a real difference . . . -- Sam Daley-Harris, Founder of RESULTS
