Sam Daley-Harris founded the anti-poverty lobby RESULTS in 1980 and began coaching Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) three months before they were launched in 2007. In 2013 CCL’s volunteers in the US and Canada had more than 1,500 letters to the editor and op-eds published and had 709 meetings with members of Congress, Parliament, or their staff. In 1987 RESULTS volunteers in the US were able to get editorial writers from 28 US newspapers on conference calls with Grameen Bank founder Muhammad Yunus 19 years before he received the Nobel Peace Prize.
