Congratulations, President Biden
The American people have spoken. Now the hard work begins to make sure the US lives up to our ideals.Learn more
We envision a future where more local people lead their own humanitarian responses and recovery. That’s why we work together to fight policies and practices that keep people vulnerable, or that transform once-thriving populations into impoverished ones.
Our bountiful planet produces enough food to feed us all, and yet, more than 800 million people go to bed hungry each night. We work to protect the livelihoods of marginalized food producers and workers—especially women, minorities, immigrants, and young people—and help them claim their rights.
Every year, rigged tax rules and corporate tax dodging sap an estimated $100 billion from poor countries. 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 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.

The recent assassination of Haiti’s president sparked a political crisis in a country that has been a theater of chronic political instability for decades. At the same time, Haitians are in dire need of reliable public services and more effective local governance. A USAID project aimed at the heart of Haiti’s struggle with inequality and corruption. Did it work?
With massive spending packages on the table, Congress must ensure that these funds benefit workers, marginalized communities, women, and the environment—and not further entrench inequality.
While we welcome the holiday marking the end of slavery, we also rededicate ourselves to the struggle to address, name, and end White supremacy. Right now, Congress has an opportunity (and duty) to listen to and center the needs of Black communities, which endured disproportionate loss and damage from the pandemic.
When the COVID-19 crisis began last year, many expats ran back to their home countries, leaving local aid providers taking all the risks at the front lines. Despite this, the voices of local actors are still not afforded enough respect.
A heat wave across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho is revealing the inequities of climate change. Americans are tired of bankrolling the chaos. Will Congress listen and end fossil fuel subsidies?
When migrant workers can’t get vaccinated, they don’t get hired. It’s one more way that the COVID-19 crisis is driving poor people deeper into poverty, and one more reason to quickly ramp up access to vaccines in countries that are struggling to turn the tide on the pandemic.
