Saturday's Conference Call

Tony Hall

Ambassador Tony Hall Will Be Our Guest. 

On Saturday, June 11, gather with your RESULTS group and call in to the national grassroots conference call. The call will begin at 2 pm ET HERE. (Call in early to help us guarantee an on-time start.)
Three times nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, former U.S. Ambassador Tony P. Hall, will be our special guest. He is one of the leading advocates for hunger relief programs and improving international human rights conditions in the world. Currently serving as Executive Director of the Alliance to End Hunger, Hall has served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. He was the chairman of the House Select Committee on Hunger and the Democratic Caucus Task Force on Hunger. He was also the author of legislation supporting food aid, child survival, basic education, primary health care, microenterprise, and development assistance programs in the world’s poorest countries. Ambassador Hall founded and was chairman of the Congressional Hunger Center, a non-governmental organization dedicated to fighting hunger by developing leaders. He was also a founding member of the Select Committee on Hunger and served as its chairman from 1989 until it was abolished in 1993.
The entire RESULTS grassroots base is invited to join together on this call and hear Ambassador Hall’s inspiring words.  He will comment on how to remain powerful and persistent as we seek to change the conversation and make poverty a thing of the past.

“For the price of a Starbucks cup of coffee, you can vaccinate nine kids. It is absolutely awesome . . . [w]e’re not going to balance the books on the backs of the poorest people in the world. Charity begins at home, but it does not end there.”

  1. I learned from Tony Hall on the Saturday conference call that 50 million Americans regularly go to bed hungry, missing meals at least three days a month. I was inspired to write a letter to my member of congress.
