Thanks Ken.
Karyne Bury
36:40
Hello everyone from sunny Miami Florida! Happy to be with you all today. And thank you Sen. Brown for all you are doing to help us fight for the rights of those living in poverty.
Ken Patterson
37:09
Welcome Karyne!
Misty Novitch
39:13
SAY THATSENATOR!!!
Karyne Bury
39:30
Yes! Say it louder so they can hear it in the back!
Lindsay K. Saunders
40:28
Absolutely! This pandemic is just further highlighting disparities, inequality, and exactly that "racism, class, challenges, and mistakes we've made."
Karyne Bury
42:18
Huge problem in Florida, 4 out of every 10 unemployment claims is rejected
Betsy Skipp
43:08
please remember all those who are undocumented and the Dreamers
Cheryl Harris
46:15
just call it Child Credit Tax not earned income child credit
Meredith Dodson
47:29
fyi the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit are two different programs
Martha
48:02
Thank you, Sen. Brown! Sen. Bennet (CO) is working on expanding SNAP benefits. Are you working with him on that?
Meredith Dodson
48:18
the key expansion that Sen Brown mentioned re the EITC is for workers who don't claim dependents (some single workers, non-custodial parents, parents with older workers, etc)
Meredith Dodson
49:09
and the Child Tax Credit expansion is to make sure that children in the lowest-income families get the full/same value of the CTC as families with somewhat higher incomes
Lindsay K. Saunders
49:53
I'm reading "Evicted" now. It's a struggle. Just breaks my heart.
Meredith Dodson
49:54
both of these expansions are critical, and could play a key role in helping millions of low-income families during this economic crisis
Meredith Dodson
50:43
for those interested in some of these damaging proposals from the Administration and RESULTS official comments in response: https://results.org/blog/results-responds-to-white-house-proposals-that-threaten-low-income-families/
Lindsay K. Saunders
52:55
That's how they do it in Zambia....they demand you pay 3 months rent at a time. It's impossible.
Misty Novitch
54:21
SNAP - foodstamps, CTC - Child Tax Credit, EITC - Earned Income Tax Credit
Meredith Dodson
55:20
fyi letter to Congressional leaders supporting SNAP signed by RESULTS and more than 750 organizations, including 53 of our local chapters, along with materials and requests to make the case for prioritizing policies that support low-income renters here: https://results.org/volunteers/lobbying/
Betsy Skipp
55:37
miami just got $$$ federal money for the homeless
Babita Daware
55:39
Are we getting any closer to Universal Healthcare in light of COVID 19?
Meredith Dodson
56:47
Unfortunately I think Sen Brown does not have time to join for more questions, but others can chime in on Babita's question etc.
Lynne
56:52
I am lately encouraged about some of the responses Governor Newsom has announced in California to the economic challenges of the pandemic, which benefit hotels, farmers, restaurants…. by having the state pay for these to be needed shelter for homeless people, and foods for food bank systems, and meals to elderly shut-ins… all while protecting the hotel industry (somewhat), and the agriculture and other food systems in our state. Could some of these things be done on a national level?
Susan Beckett
56:57
There most vulnerable people whose poor credit rating keeps them from traditional housing, do not qualify for Snap benefits. Is that something you can address?
Meredith Dodson
57:52
and for Marty: Sen Bennett and Sen Brown work really closely together on EITC/CTC already, and yes I think so on SNAP
Allison Gallaher
58:24
karen armstrong from Medina
Oscar Lanzi
59:56
Hello all, Oscar Lanzi from Chicago here!
Amy Robinson
01:00:04
I work in a homeless shelter and Evictions are one of the top reasons for staying in homelessness. Evictions cripple the poor.
Ken Patterson
01:00:32
Welcome Oscar. Thanks for your work Amy—you are so right.
Diana Tyree Eddy
01:02:07
WOULD THE EXPANSION OF EITC AND CTC FIGURE INTO FILING THIS YEARS TAXES (TAX FILING DATE HAS BEEN DELAYED TO MID SUMMER)?
Richard Remm
01:03:17
What is the status of the proposal for tax deduction for renters who pay a large percentage of their income for rent. Senators Harris (CA) Bookers (NJ)
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:04:34
omg this is great. Love the interaction!
Marie Tilden
01:04:38
yes
Marie Tilden
01:04:55
yes
Marie Tilden
01:05:03
yes
Karyne Bury
01:05:10
Yes, all in my PJs hahaha
Misty Novitch
01:05:28
LOL there’s a poll!
Karyne Bury
01:05:32
Yes 1 to 7
Annalisa Eustace
01:05:43
lol
Mary Albertson
01:05:58
Yes
Meredith Dodson
01:07:09
to Lynne's question: the measures that some governors and mayors are taking to house people experiencing homelessness are, at least in part, funded by the federal dollars ($12 billion for housing in the CARES Act) -- so there is a federal component. But we need $100 billion to keep low-income renters stably housed since the providers working with people experiencing homelessness do not have the resources to meet increased demand. But, in general, any additional resources will be administered by state or local agencies
Cecilia van Wijk
01:08:02
what a great story!
Meredith Dodson
01:10:57
For Diana's question: since so many taxpayers have already filed their 2019 taxes, the focus is for expanding EITC and CTC it for our current tax year (and for the years where our economy continues to struggle) -- which would provide a crucial boost to families and local economies in early 2021 when we know many will be struggling.
Barbara Puigh
01:11:48
Lila, what a great job!
Nancy Gardiner
01:11:56
great share, Lila!
Ken Patterson
01:12:03
Great work Lila
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:12:04
Great share, Lila! What a wonderful outline and presentation. Very inspiring and motivating.
Karyne Bury
01:12:05
Awesome, great job Lila!
Karyne Bury
01:12:08
great advice
Lisa Marchal
01:12:08
Thanks for your story, Lila!
Meredith Dodson
01:12:57
For Richard's question on the refundable renters credit -- while we are focused on the shorter-term needs (the IRS does not have the capacity right now to administer a monthly refundable credit to keep people stably housed during this pandemic), after the immediate push we will be continuing to make the case that Congress should prioritize a refundable renters credit long-term (which could lift 9 million people above the poverty line!)
Frances Moore
01:13:32
"Jazz hands" are a great way to show agreement/appreciation for comments. (I just learned about them on a Braver Angels webinar.) Join in!
Cecilia van Wijk

I registered yesterday for the RESULTS Virtual IC! Who's with me?!?
Oscar Lanzi
01:16:40
It's easy to register! Go for it!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:16:41
exciting! thanks, Lisa!
Meredith Dodson
01:18:02
thank you for your awesome work in Kansas and SC! And so everyone has a handy link to register (and do more inspiring stuff!): https://results.org/conference/
Lisa Marchal
01:18:33
Hope to see everyone at the Virtual International Conference!
Meredith Dodson
01:19:18
and fyi more about the housing day of action (along with lots of other resources during this pandemic) and link to the online alert I mentioned earlier: https://results.org/blog/latest-from-capitol-hill-on-coronavirus-and-poverty/
Lillian's iPad (3)
01:19:53
is the conference focused on international issues? is there a separate conference for national issues?
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:20:27
To the RESULTS Vets, remember to talk through the issues with new people very clearly, explaining them as you go, so people feel comfortable, welcome, and confident. Don't refer to acronyms like when we say "LTE," say "Letter to the Editor." Spell things out. Keep referring to how to find resources and walk through where things are on the website. Explain what things are to allow people to become empowered.
Lisa Marchal
01:20:49
The conference includes both U.S. poverty issues and global poverty issues.
Meredith Dodson
01:21:09
the conference focuses on both US and international poverty issues, combination of joint sessions, skills workshops, issue panels, prep for lobbying, and (virtual) lobbying itself!
Philip Lilienthal
01:21:15
I have never been involved except as a contributor. I want to take a stand for participating at the conference and being part of the lobbying effort. yea!
Lisa Marchal
01:21:36
Fabulous, Philip!
Misty Novitch
01:21:38
You’re so welcome Philip! And thanks!
Craig Roshaven
01:29:42
That worked pretty well.
Anne Child in Oak Ridge
01:29:53
ask new volunteers to lead a laser talk at a meeting
Karyne Bury
01:29:54

Misty Novitch
01:29:54
BREAKOUT ROOMS ROCK
Cecilia van Wijk
01:29:55
Babita, Ellen, Keith, Nancy -- sorry I accidentally left the group before we ended!!
Misty Novitch

Super engaging - love y'all
Mercedeh Tavacoli
01:30:05
LOVED the idea of the breakout groups!!!!
Craig Roshaven
01:30:08
We should do that again.
Kathleen Duncan
01:30:09
The My//Our Breakout was FUN! Liked it. Worked Well.
Jim Driggers
01:30:12
Cecilia, I did same thing.
Martin White
01:30:14
Worth doing again!
Keith Task
01:30:16
from the break out: encourage new ppl to just "jump in"
Philip Lilienthal
01:30:18
a great beginning of my involvement.
Mary Bixler
01:30:19
Good experience
Matthew Mohan
01:30:21

Great to meet dedicated advocates from across the country!
Benjamin Clark
01:30:24
Very good experience w/ the break out rooms
John Hornby
01:30:25
Diverse group, we learned from each other
Karen Gielen - Seattle
01:30:25
start by finding out what brought them to RESULTS so you can build on that excitement
Mary Pat Brennan
01:30:26
That was fun! We only had two in our group, a brand new newbie and myself, part of Results since 2014.
Richard Remm
01:30:27
good idea
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:30:33
We talked about modifying how RESULTS works to fit into their life so that they are more able to stay.
Peter Stoel, OR
01:30:35
Learned some things
Nancy Gardiner
01:30:35
People in my room never unmuted themselves. Wondering if people on phone did not know how
Sandra
01:30:44
if folks likely to have interest. talk, invite, mentor, persist.
Maxine
01:30:47
I enjoyed this idea of breakout groups, I called in and there was trouble with my phone being unmuted, so I was able to sign in on my pc and was a part of group 33 for the last minute.
Barbara Puigh
01:30:56
IS that EDT?
Roger
01:30:56
Importance of following up with new recruits, getting feedback from hem personally, and persisting with invtiatiosn
Karyne Bury
01:31:00
We are all experiencing similar issues, and got great advice on building relationships with new members *and existing ones to retain them, the importance of simple actions folks can take ownership of, and how frequently we should meet
Oscar Lanzi
01:31:00
Give someone something to contribute, an action that will hook them in. Worked for me.
Karyne Bury
01:31:12
this was great, thanks again!
Sandra
01:31:15
thanks, Dorothy!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:31:15
I enjoyed the breakout rooms, I just need to get better at managing the technology 😅 Glad I wasn't the only one, Jim!
Amy Robinson
01:31:24
So nice to meet others. That was lots of fun and I enjoyed it
Crickett N
01:32:02
We had three in our break out group it all went so well. It was nice to meet Philip and see Zelda's sweet face!
Ken Patterson
01:32:07
Some great ideas here, keep them coming. Glad you like the sharing
Alexa Angelo
01:32:54
We emphasized the need to keep pushing, even when you are discouraged about the views of your representatives!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:33:38
Thanks Jos, Lisa, and Ken for the Grassroots Café!!
Karyne Bury
01:33:43
Building relationships over time, don’t push to too much action too quickly. Make information easily available for them (the new format of the RESULTS website helps with that)
Dorothy Monza
01:33:46
loved the breakout rooms! we talked about the importance of making a personal connection with folks, thinking about who in our networks we could call in, and paying attention to people’s interests and inviting them to take action on things that really resonate with them.
Karyne Bury
01:33:57
nice job everyone, this was a great learning opportunity!
Oscar Lanzi
01:34:09
Thanks, the breakout rooms were great!
Marge Lynd
01:34:46
We talked about making sure new people feel welcomed to the group and know how valuable their input is.
Mélissa, Results Canada (she/her)
01:34:53
Hi all, Mélissa here from Ottawa. Great to be here with you all! And huge congrats to the UK team!
Lisa Marchal
01:35:06
Wonderful conversations in the breakout rooms - hooray!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:35:10
Keith (as a new advocate) shared in our breakout room that offering small bite size pieces at first is helpful to get comfortable with one small action. Ellen responded with encouragement to push through the nervousness as a new advocate!
Ken Patterson
01:35:11

Exactly. That makes me nervous. That respiratory set of traits for both COVID and TB...and TB has proven, effective treatments. We CAN intervene and save those lives, but we just need to reach those people.
Craig Roshaven
01:41:55
Mr. Sands please tell us about the role of the Gene Xpert Machines and how the Covid crisis is affecting their deployment.
Joanne Carter
01:42:20
Please type questions for Peter in the chat window.
Jim Driggers
01:43:18
In what ways is Global Fund helping to fight COVID?
Philip Lilienthal
01:44:25
what tracking and tracing mechanisms are you encouraging and what might be the cost per patient of implementation?
Joel Rubinstein
01:44:57
If the U.S. comes through with the $1 billion is that to be matched by other countries 2:1?
Ken Patterson
01:45:50
Q from another advocate: Why is the Global Fund well placed to lead in this way with the COVID response?
John Fawcett
01:46:58
Joel, we're asking that an emergency $1 billion be exempt from the US law that caps contributions at 33%. However, if the U.S. contributes we do think that will put pressure on other major donors to contribute as well.
Crickett N
01:46:58
Hi Joel - the GF is looking for additional donor support - but are looking for a legislative exception or a fix so that it doesn't HAVE to be matched 2:1 - knowing the need now - and waiting on a match may be hard
John Fawcett

Cecilia van Wijk

Chitra Ramaswami
01:48:13
Peter, you have written about the interdependence between ending epidemics and building health systems. Wih economies in deep recession how cam LMICs do both?
Joel Rubinstein
01:48:17
Thanks John and Crickett!
JF Tardif
01:49:41
Is the GF's financial crunch a cash issue (i.e. if you had access to 2021 and 2022 pledges, it would go away) or an issue of having all funds for all years already committed?
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:50:36
QUESTION: Yesterday, I heard my Senator, Thom Tillis, say he is resistent to support any foreign aid right now b/c (he claims) the money will go towards debts to China. Do we have recommendations on how to address this type of concern?
Barbara Puigh
01:51:12
Great question Lindsay!
Sandra
01:53:56
how would a hospital system in the US access your procurement process or supply chain?
Jim Driggers
01:56:06
Is GF lessening their oversight of how their grant money is used?
Ken Patterson
01:57:04
These are great questions. We’ll see what we can do to get answers to the ones that have not been answered.
Cecilia van Wijk
01:57:11
great perspective from Peter on how African countries are more equipped in some ways to deal with COVID than western countries because they've experience this before.
yanick perodin
01:58:17
How do you deal with the culture of defiance in many African and Caribbean communities towards installing healthcare systems from the West - it is being perceived as colonialism
yanick perodin
01:58:36
and hinders the delivery of much needed care
Joel Rubinstein
01:58:43
The GFATM has decades of success and scaling up, but there's lot's more room for scaling up. Can we, like, double the scale in the next replenishment?
yanick perodin
01:58:48
for example, in Haiti clinics are being burned down
Lindsay K. Saunders
01:59:45
Thank you for the direction on messaging!
Cecilia van Wijk
02:00:26
yes 🙌 civil society knows what best what they need and how to deliver services to their people
Joanne Carter
02:01:01
Joel, the scale you call for is the scale needed.
Cecilia van Wijk
02:01:01
thanks, Peter!!!
Jim Driggers
02:01:13
Sounds like GF is locally driven and globally funded.
Cecilia van Wijk
02:01:27
great recap, Jim
Lindsay K. Saunders
02:01:51
Exactly! Thanks for hitting on that way to frame the way GF works.
