Make wealthy polluters pay
Urge President Biden to work with Congress to make the planet's biggest polluters pay their fair share to combat the climate crisis.Sign the petition
We fight to protect the rights and livelihoods of people most affected by the climate crisis and advocate for government action to help communities cope with climate impacts and shift funding from fossil fuel subsidies to climate-friendly alternatives. We call on governments to aggressively fund sustainable climate solutions such as solar and wind energy.
We reject the extreme concentration of wealth and power that drives inequality, and we challenge billionaires, corporations, governments, and international financial institutions every day to do better. We work to change tax policies so that big companies pay their fair share and stop using offshore tax havens and other practices that rob developing countries of money they could use to fight poverty.
We advocate for more equal economies, workers’ rights, corporate accountability, and debt relief for low-income countries, as well as investments in health care and education for all in the US and globally. We bring low-wage workers to talk directly with their elected officials so they have more say over the policies that affect their lives. We also call on US policymakers to strengthen protections for these workers by raising the minimum wage, providing workplace safety requirements, and advocating for paid family and medical leave, paid sick days, and affordable childcare.
We envision a future where more local people lead their own humanitarian responses and recovery. We call for policy change that protects those forced to flee their homes, and we push for government action to strengthen funding for local humanitarian action, bolster the role of women as leaders and advocates, and help local and national communities and governments improve their disaster management systems.
We envision a world where women and girls gain power over every aspect of their lives, live free from violence, and influence institutions. That’s why Oxfam has made gender justice a critical component in every country where we work to help overcome gender discrimination and influence public policy decisions.
