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.

Corporations and the very wealthy spent years gaming the tax code and pressuring Congress to secure an outlandish goal: Pay no taxes. And it worked. But we have a chance right now to address the sickening inequities of the tax code, and raise revenue for jobs-creating infrastructure and the care economy.
For decades, the fossil fuel industry has enjoyed outlandish subsidies from taxpayers. Congress and the administration finally have the opportunity to stop the handouts, and address climate change, corporate power, and racial justice.
As the largest bilateral aid donor in the world, the US could have a lasting legacy on the global fight against poverty. But we need to take the opportunity and responsibility seriously, and dedicate enough funds to make a difference–especially during the pandemic.
