Take action

Imagine a fairer, safer, more sustainable world for everyone. You can make it happen.

When we stand together, we really can make a difference. Take action with Oxfam and add your name to the roll call of people who refuse to sit back and do nothing.  

Even It Up

Extreme inequality is the defining challenge of our time, but it is not inevitable. We can Even It Up and make the world a fairer place. Join us. Call on governments to: 

  • Ensure tax systems are fair and free of loopholes so that the richest pay their fair share
  • Invest in vital public services – like universal healthcare and education – so everyone has a fighting chance
  • Make sure everyone has a decent job with fair pay
  • Ensure economic policies work to close the gap between women and men
  • Work for their citizens, first  – the interests of the richest can no longer be put ahead of those of the rest of us

The world is ready to act. Are you? Together, we can end extreme inequality.

Behind the Brands

Behind the BrandsTake action to change the way the food companies that make your favourite brands do business.

Already your support has resulted in the big three chocolate companies making commitments to tackle the inequality, hunger and poverty faced by women in their cocoa supply chains. Also, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo have committed to prevent land grabs in their supply chains. And Kellogg and General Mills signed on to industry-leading steps to cut climate change pollution. We're just getting going...so add your voice.
