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.

Billionaires don’t pay their fair share in taxes. There is no justification for it. We must tax them now to invest in our families and a green economy.
MLK Day 2022 comes at us with a burst of feelings so startling it’s like fireworks. We have the joy of Dr. King’s legacy and the sharp urgency of his call to action—but we also feel the dark weight of the injustices that endure. What now is our call to action?
Moderna’s greed and secrecy are prolonging the pandemic, putting millions of lives at risk.
The border between Mexico and the US has become a nightmare of our own making. Thousands of refugees desperately seeking asylum are facing impossible odds: either detained in squalid and dangerous conditions on one side, or expelled back to Mexico, facing the likelihood of violent or even deadly assault. Now the US government is refusing to offer vaccines to all refugees in its custody, exacerbating the danger to them and prolonging the pandemic for all of us. We are working to shine a spotlight into the darker corners of our government’s operations, with a request for full information about this perverse decision.
One year ago, we celebrated as the first (effective and safe) vaccine dose was administered in the US. In the months that followed, many of us were lucky enough to get fully vaccinated, with the hope of getting back to normal. But it’s been a rough road, as the emergence of variants has battered our hopes. In the end, we know that the pandemic won’t end until everyone, everywhere has access to these vaccines.
After a decade of civil society advocacy, international organizations have introduced new rules that will push more countries and companies to disclose details in contracts around extractive industries. A good start, but we need more.
