@Sam: yes, will be focus of most of the next 30 minutes or so, including our guest speaker Ellen Nissenbaum from CBPP
Lisa Marchal
29:45
Hi, Sam! Yes, we'll be covering points that will help our advocacy in both global poverty and U.S. poverty.

What a way to start off 2021 by getting involved as an advocate! Congrats and welcome.
Karyne Bury
35:06
Welcome!
Jamy Rentschler

So excited to hear from Ellen again! :)
Anuroop Kumar
46:46
I think this is the importance of our non-partisan identity. Yes Democrats have fought the elections on and constantly claimed they are committed towards increased aid - however, now they are on the spot. They must follow through. Us being us, we must keep them accountable.
Cecilia van Wijk
47:26
Great point -- love this @Anuroop
Meredith Dodson
51:19
can see that data here: https://www.census.gov/data-tools/demo/hhp/#/?measures=EXR, I will talk through some of the latest findings later
Misty Novitch
51:38
thanks Meredith
Meredith Dodson
52:22
and CBPP has an analysis with visuals (will be showing 1 later): https://www.cbpp.org/research/poverty-and-inequality/tracking-the-covid-19-recessions-effects-on-food-housing-and

How can we address the disparity in educational access and COVID impact on children - especially among minority and urban populations?
Melissa Cullen
53:47
We need to get kids back to school safely as soon as possible. Speaking myself as a teaching from a title 1 school.
Sarah Leone
54:12
this is amazing regarding assistance towards immigrants!
Hwa Young Lee
54:20
@Melissa, yes, absolutely. I work as a high school tutor, and the kids are so discouraged
Asiah Rivera

#ForceTheVote
Melissa Cullen
55:19
@ Hwa Young - can't tell you how many single parent families are working grave yard shifts so they can be home during the day with their kids. It is too much!
Lisa Schliff
55:36
My son teaches 5th grade in Stockton and is struggling to educate these underprivileged children. They need to be in school, vaccinated and getting free breakfast and lunch.
Melissa Cullen
55:51
AGREED!
Meredith Dodson
56:09
Some additional info on what the last package included re immigrants here: https://www.nilc.org/2020/12/21/nilc-statement-regarding-900-billion-covid-relief-package/
Cynthia Tschampl
56:23
local budgets are key to education, health, TB, COVID, etc response!
Cecilia van Wijk
58:01
@Meredith, is there a source/link for that fact Ellen just shared regarding the recession and how not spending on relief packages actually made the recession longer?
Cecilia van Wijk
58:19
This would be greatly helpful with our junior Senator
Ashley Swaby
58:24
^ This
Misty Novitch
58:27
I’m so glad these are recorded and that y’all post blogs updates and weekly updates!
Kit Logsdon
59:19
The previous recovery was directed at business and bailed out the financial industry. This needs to be directed at the consumer. Money filters upward not downward.
Hwa Young Lee
59:52
@Kit, Voodoo economics at their finest
Claire McDonald
01:00:08
Yaasss
Asiah Rivera
01:00:43
I loooove hearing that last bit!!
Brenna Lentner
01:00:44
“Voodoo economics” I love that term!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:00:44
Thank you so much for sharing, Ellen! Incredibly important info you shared
Jim Driggers
01:00:44
A rising tide starts at the bottom, not the top.
Rayna Castillo
01:00:52
Yes! While there's room for optimism, we definitely need to hold them accountable!
Hwa Young Lee
01:00:57
Thank you, Ellen!
Craig Roshaven
01:01:03
Wow. That was great. Thank you.
Jamy Rentschler
01:01:20
We really appreciate you, Ellen, and all of the amazing work done by CBPP!
Ken Patterson

Thank you, Ellen! That was really insightful
Debbie Baskin

Ellen is always phenomenal! Thank you Ellen!
Melissa Cullen
01:02:28
Is there are Native American statistic at all?
Delores Lyons
01:03:08
I dido your question Melissa Cullen.
Karyne Bury
01:03:20
This was incredible, thank you Ellen! This was critical information and details on how we can move our country forward beyond this immediate crisis. A lot to address from the first opportunity. We are not a rubber stamp and will definitely hold our leaders accountable to bring us forward!
Melissa Cullen
01:03:53
Thank you Meredith!
Delores Lyons
01:04:11
Yes, thank you Meredith>
Sarah Leone
01:05:30
thank you so much Ellen & Meredith!
Lindsay Saunders
01:05:32
This housing crisis was in existence long before the pandemic. We simply must address this in every aspect possible. Glad we've getting so much background info to help boost folks when they most need it and we'll persist even beyond the pandemic.
Valielza O'Keefe
01:05:43
Urgent question regarding the rent moratorium - what policy are we pushing to ensure that people don't have to pay rent all at once as soon as the moratorium lifts? From what I've heard, many mortgage companies are handling rent like this
ellen nissenbaum
01:05:48
Regarding Kit's point, to be fair, there was a LOT of provisions in the 2009/2010 ARRA package for the poor (SNAP, fiscal relief to avert cuts and protect Medicaid, and EITC/CTC expansions.) But we all agree it was not enough, and it didn't last long enough. Ellen
Anuroop Kumar
01:05:56
We definitely NEED an eviction moratorium - this personally helped me keep my family with a roof last Spring - in the height of the pandemic.
Lester Wyborny
01:06:25
Should Results be concerned about ensuring that sufficient numbers of people are vaccinated domestically? This is key to realize an economic recovery.
Alicia Stromberg
01:06:31
thanks Meredith and Ellen for this critical information!
Hwa Young Lee
01:06:57
@Lester, it seems to me that should be a huge priority, alongside safe and affordable childcare as Ellen mentioned
Melissa Cullen
01:06:58
@Lester I agree
Cynthia Levin
01:07:55
What is a cadre?
Valory Means
01:07:58
Woohoo!!!!!!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:07:59
report report report!!
Hwa Young Lee
01:08:23
@Cynthia, it's like a generation or cohort
Valory Means
01:08:27
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cynthia Levin
01:09:25
YEs, but what does a cadre mean for us? Jos didn’t mention it
Jim Driggers
01:10:39
For cadre, check out onelook.com
Alicia Stromberg

yaaaaayyy welcome all new RESULTS advocates! :)

Greetings to all New Advocates!
Taliilee Gemechu
01:12:24
Welcome to all new advocates!
Meredith Dodson
01:12:32
on the question re making sure renters don't have a whole bunch of back rent (and fees), that is why we pushed for $25 billion in emergency rental assistance in the bipartisan package last month -- that can help renters make up for back rent/fees. More on the details from NLIHC: https://nlihc.org/sites/default/files/Housing-Provisions-in-Emergency-COVID-19-Relief-Package.pdf
Valory Means
01:13:13
Love it!!
Meredith Dodson
01:13:41
and we know more will be needed to help renters during this crisis -- conservative economist Mark Zandi estimates there is $70 billion in accumulated back rent and fees: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-10/u-s-households-may-be-70-billion-behind-on-rent
ellen nissenbaum
01:14:04
I am going to drop off. But I love Pankaj's questions about how much is too much? I worry all the time about groups that advance huge "laundry lists" of many priorities without careful strategic consideration of which policies are most importnat -- and especially figuring out which priorities need an extra "push." I would argue priorities aimed at poor people are where we need to focus, and that given the hardship/crisis, I wouldn't worry too much about pushing for a targeted but strong list of things like housing, nurtiion, unemployment, EITC/Child Tax Credit, provisions that help immigrants,, etc. I think you should assume ,for now, that we may not see another COVID relief and recoverage package this year (too early to tell), so let's go to the "mat" for the things we know families/households need now. Thanks for the nice comments in chat. Please feel free to sign up for CBPP publications. Our blogs and social media are good ways to see what data we're putting out and what priorites we lift up.
Lisa Marchal
01:14:38
Thank you so much, Ellen!
ellen nissenbaum
01:14:59
Sorry for long chat, thanks again for all you do and for having me. Wishing you a healthy, happy and "successful" (e.g. in your advocacy work) year! Bye! (and feel free to email me if we can ever help. nissenbaum@cbpp.org)
Cecilia van Wijk
01:15:18
Wow! Thanks, Crystal!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:15:22
That was so encouraging for me
Alicia Stromberg
01:15:39
thank you Crystal for sharing your story with us today!!!! PUPO = persistence usually pays off :)
Cecilia van Wijk
01:15:43
I will be working with a new Representative in my district and I needed to hear this!
Anuroop Kumar
01:15:43
Love it Ellen - thanks for your expertise and wisdom!
Ruth Thurmond Scott
01:16:12
Great Crystal, welcome and thanks for sharing.
Anuroop Kumar
01:16:13
great share Crystal - love it !
Meredith Dodson
01:16:48
Welcome Crystal! Love the story (and I *also* love tax credits ;).
Ruchisree Garuda
01:16:49
Are these the recently updates ones?
Meredith Dodson
01:17:38
re the question on not spending on relief packages actually making recessions longer, a good read to start: https://www.cbpp.org/research/economy/fiscal-stimulus-needed-to-fight-recessions
Jim Driggers
01:17:45
When "selling" an idea for Congress members and staff to support, show them how their support for the bill or policy helps them in some way. We all listen to radio station WIFM: What In it For Me.
Virginia Vogts
01:18:18
It’s sometimes difficult to find out what roles congressional staff hold. It’s ok to call office and ask who does what.
Alicia Stromberg
01:18:31
^ great advice Ginnie!
Valory Means
01:18:46
Consistency is the key to the breakthrough!
Eileen Lau
01:19:32
Yes thanks Crystal for the encouragement to persist and try another contact!
Hwa Young Lee
01:20:13
Lisa?
Carolyn Prouty
01:20:55
Question for breakout: What has worked in securing meeting/establishing relationships wMoc's
Misty Novitch
01:28:56
So nice to meet new friends (some of you again!) welcome new folks!!!
Alexandria Smith
01:29:05
That was super helpful as a new fellow, thank you to my group!
Susan Oehser
01:29:25
Good to meet some new folks. Persistence is key.
Innah Lachica
01:29:26
Thank you to everyone in my group! Sorry I couldn't finish in time!
Erica Schweizer (she/her)
01:29:28
Next time maybe tell us how much time we have in small break rooms before we start. We spend most of the time on introductions and ran out of time.
Kazmyn Ramos
01:29:42
Joanne said that we need to be persistent and remember that they work for us. That was helpful.
Paul Hoffinger
01:29:44
Involving young people in visits.
Oscar Lanzi
01:29:52
One more idea -- always keep aides/members in touch with media you generate.
Scott Leckman
01:29:53
Sara B. talked about asking about the values of the MOC!
Darla Swanson
01:29:53
Two points I took away from our breakout session:
David den Boer
01:29:54
I learned we have a lot of new politicians nationwide from qanon to communist public servants.
Misty Novitch
01:29:55
I made a short site for the RESULTS Legislator Lookup y’all - bit.ly/LegislatorLookupRESULTS
BABITA DAWARE
01:29:56
how often should we meet w/ MOC or their staff-LA?
Cynthia Levin
01:30:02
Don’t forget to express humanity. We’ve spent time building up relations with these aides and they all went through a traumatic event. Express gladness for their safety, tell them you were thinking of them, express that you look forward to making the world a safer and fairer place in 2021
Ashish Bali
01:30:03
cultivate the staff and that is a sure way to get to your Rep and Senator
BABITA DAWARE
01:30:09
once in 3 months or more frequent?
Valory Means
01:30:18
Many nuggets in my chat room but the one that was best is where she told us to be specific in our ask.
Lucinda Winslow
01:30:26
We learned from Leslie in Great Barrington about the power of persistence, being a squeaky wheel till they have no choice but meet with you. Also, they need to know about the issues, and if they do will likely sign on
Darla Swanson
01:30:40
1. You never know who it is that might be helpful to the cause.
Grace Higginbottom
01:30:44
Be organized up front; have targeted requests; be persistent; use constituents; build relationships with aides; get several people to request meeting if not successful at first
Hwa Young Lee
01:30:45
To see who your congressperson looks up to and say, "X is supporting this. They'd appreciate your support, too"
Valory Means
01:30:47

Karyne Bury
01:30:50
Easy to remember, the IC is on my birthday 🎁
Florence Fultz
01:30:50
Linking the national issue to local situations in the member's jurisdiction
Lynne Patalano
01:30:51
Loved the idea of reaching out to specific policy staffers and ask their area of focus for the year ahead
Susan Weinstein
01:30:51
Welcome to Western Colorado new group! Very nice talking with Marjorie in my breakout room; and, also to the brave member from Texas!!
Cynthia Levin
01:30:57
Also, don’t worry if you don’t get a face to face right away if you are new. You might have to go through a gatekeeper aide. Build that relationship and it will help to get those meetings in the future
Darla Swanson
01:31:12
2. Find a connection with the person…such as similar background, college, etc.
Laura Hart
01:31:21
Thanks Cynthia for your excellent reminders!
Lisa Marchal
01:31:22
Fantastic ideas you all have shared!
Sarah Leone
01:31:23
happy early birthday Karyne 😉
Tari & Bill Nicholson
01:31:23
we like not having to fly to DC from CA
Mark Coats
01:31:31
more frequent than 3 months, but try to find a reason to contact them... Like a letter was published, etc.
Cecilia van Wijk
01:31:32
Loved my group! Teresa, Cilla, Sheryl, Michael, Brenna!
Lindsay Saunders
01:31:37
Please save the date for Feb 11 -- Grassroots Board Town Hall. Details in the weekly update. :) We'd love to have you join us.
Maxine Thomas
01:31:50
Thanks for adding Lindsay :)
Rhonda Belt Rhea
01:31:51
It is important to contact all of our elected officials on a routine basis so that their staff know we willingly share our opinions. We might be surprised when the member calls you to ask for your support on an issue.
Brenna Lentner
01:31:52
Thanks Cecilia!
Keerthi Samanthapudi
01:31:55
Sorry to my group - I got cut off! Nice meeting all of you and happy to talk more later! One pearl of advice shared by Babita in my group was focusing on stories from the community > facts/stats and doing some dry runs to practice before the meeting
Kyle Talkington
01:32:15
A lot of building relationships has to do with rust. And the intern you meet in a MOC office today may become a Legislative Director not too far down the road.
Valielza O'Keefe
01:32:28
BARBARA LEE THE QUEEN??? I'm very excited to hear she'll be there
Valory Means
01:33:14
Thanks for the nuggets Grace!
Karyne Bury
01:33:23
We had a great break out group and were joined by two new fellows, welcome again Hunter and Leena! Although it is difficult in this divisive environment, remember that our representatives are human, as are their staff. Although they seem to work against a lot of our issues, we must continue to engage with them out of shared humanity, and be persistent. Follow up, follow up, follow up.
Rhonda Belt Rhea
01:34:00
Attending a local food distribution or COVID19 testing/vaccinating event when the officials or a staff member will be present, is a good time to say hello.
Maxine Thomas
01:34:11
Yes!!! Congrats RESULTS!!!!!!
David Plasterer
01:34:56
Offering your local expertise to MOCs about the issues on the ground is helpful. They may ask for data which gives an opportunity for follow up meetings!
Betsy Skipp

People in extreme poverty are opportunities to invest in human capital to help them become more productive workers and entreprenuers.
Maria Kasparian
01:41:23
whose nutrition data is this?
Yvonne Wyborny
01:42:19
When will appropriation requests be ready for upcoming fiscal year?
Hwa Young Lee
01:42:24
Important note, stunting affects physical AND cognitive development
Misty Novitch
01:42:56
Wow…1.2 billion could mitigate these impacts??? wow
Carolyn Prouty
01:43:13
That is pocket change compared to the good that it could do!
Cecilia van Wijk
01:43:24
Yes, Carolyn
Roxanne Allen
01:43:57
$1.2 B total, not just US??
Misty Novitch
01:44:30
yes thats really not much
Jazmine Smith
01:44:34
Jim, I think looking at people forced instituutionally into poverty as “human capital” and having the goal of making them into “more productive workers” requires some investigation and consideration of this countries historical context.
Alicia Stromberg
01:44:38
They are also worth investing in because they are human beings, regardless of productivity.
Jim Driggers
01:44:45
What investor would choose not to invest pennies to get dollars in return?
Margaret Rohter
01:44:55
Very scary to think that funds area already exhausted.
Alexandria Smith
01:45:33
Very much agreed Alicia and Jazmine, thank you
Valory Means
01:46:17
Sad
Alicia Stromberg
01:46:25
Yes, we need to be careful to not commodify people who we are providing aid or assistance, and to always lead with humanity when talking about our interventions.
Carolyn Prouty
01:46:30
@Alicia, Jazmine & Alexandria: YES! AND, I think that the approach Jim is suggesting will appeal to some more conservative legislators, and we need to have ways to call them in to this fight. That does not mean that it is the only approach and the only thing we believe.
Carolyn Prouty
01:47:08
Or even the thing we actually believe!
Roxanne Allen
01:47:09
Is $20 B our usual “fair share” equalling 1/3 of total world response?
Hwa Young Lee
01:47:29
Could you explain what you mean by "fair share"?
Ken Patterson
01:47:31
Thanks for that Carolyn
Julia Ryan
01:48:15
Absolutely often the easier approach with fiscal conservatives. We are bipartisan and there are different points of view in the legislature.
Craig Roshaven
01:48:32
I agree with Carolyn. Jim’s suggestion for framing it as a wise investment could help us persuade some conservative members of Congress.
Roxanne Allen
01:48:32
We have always figured that US should contribute about 1/3 of industrialized nation contributions to global efforts.
Hwa Young Lee
01:49:30
I haven't heard of that, but I know the US and many other industrialized countries have pledged to dedicate .7% of GNP to ODA since 1970, which we've consistently failed to do
Lisa Marchal
01:49:37
@Hwa, the 1/3 is referring to the "up to 1/3" that we, as a country, are allowed to contribute to the Global Fund.
Cecilia van Wijk
01:49:47
Important and critical points Jazmine and Alicia. Thanks for fleshing out that Jim's point, Carolyn.
Hwa Young Lee
01:50:00
AH! Thank you, Lisa. That makes more sense!
Lisa Marchal
01:50:02
(I'll defer to my policy colleagues for any corrections to my understanding!)
Jazmine Smith
01:50:26
We work to end poverty because no one should be living in poverty and its inhumane. We don’t do it to make arguments of people being capital, commodities etc. I think we can humanize the importance of fighting poverty without using oppressive language, even to try to make the cause “easier” for conservatives to connect with.
Jazmine Smith
01:50:45
Or at least I do, I should say.
Gene Heck
01:50:46
I for one believe in putting a human face on capitalism.
Jim Driggers
01:51:10
I agree with our common humanity, but that doesn't resonate with some Congress members. To be more effective in lobbying those members, I think we need to be open to changing how we frame our message. We need to be more inclusive politically as well.
Rhonda Belt Rhea
01:51:18
point well taken
Ruchisree Garuda
01:51:31
Is this figure of students out of school global?
Linda Syth
01:52:00
Will we have access to these slides?
Hwa Young Lee
01:52:24
@Jim Driggers, would it help if we were to connect poverty with crime rates and how much it costs taxpayers to house prisoners?
Lisa Marchal
01:52:42
@Linda, you can find the slides here - https://results.org/volunteers/national-webinars/
Sarah Borgstede
01:53:10
Is this the first GPE replenishment since the READ Act was passed? As we advocate for GPE replenishment to Members of Congress who supported the READ Act, does it make sense to explain the thread that links the READ Act to the GPE replenishment now?
Jim Driggers
01:54:36
I think it helps to connect ending poverty with whatever the person we're talking with cares most about.
Yvonne Wyborny
01:54:59
Detroit 11
Carolyn Prouty
01:55:13
@Jazmine: You have articulated well the exact reason I do this work! Thank you for that. Using oppressive language is not what I was advocating, and your point is well taken. I think our challenge is how to call in people who have views that might cause them to oppose our work, and find that language. It might be investing in all human potential, including people who are never considered part of capitalism, like folks with disabilities. Figuring this out is essential to our work. Thanks for helping us to do that!
Gene Heck
01:55:15
Pragmatism!
Alex Spenser
01:55:19
We also need to use Folate instead of Folic Acid to care for women who have the MTHFR gene. Otherwise great illness ensues. And we need to eliminate High Fructose Corn Syrup from everyone’s diet.
Misty Novitch
01:55:57
Yall rock
Brenna Lentner
01:56:00
Thanks Alex, I also have MTHFR gene mutation myself.
Cecilia van Wijk
01:56:04
Jim, yes our junior Senator really cares about the budget and the deficit so I am excited to use Ellen's point about the recession being worse when we didn't support people to hopefully have him hear our points
Craig Roshaven
01:56:11
Thanks John!
Brenna Lentner
01:56:12
Finding real folate is tricky
