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.

As the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative moves to enforce standards, a US oil major exits. Now, all eyes are on Chevron and Exxon.
The anti-choice movement labeled itself “pro-life” decades ago and rode that train all the way to the Supreme Court. As states furiously roll back rights to abortion and reproductive choice, we can see, with terrifying clarity, how that term is really a shield; and the policymakers who hide behind it often implement policies that disempower and harm people.
Four countries on the Horn of Africa are in the grip of hunger emergencies; a stronger Feed the Future program could help prevent agonizing crises like these.
We’re getting ready to fight for our communities as the Supreme Court seems poised to hand down some devastating decisions. One of the cases that has enormous potential for harm is WV v. EPA, which could take restraints off coal companies and result in widespread damage.
What is the nineteenth of June but a day that reveals--more than any other day throughout the year--the gross injustice and cruelty which many people endure in this country? A federal holiday is a nice step, but we have a long way to go.
