Our work

While Oxfam’s efforts reach around the world, the Oxfam America Action Fund uses legislative lobbying and political advocacy to change the systems that perpetuate inequality and hold the powerful accountable.

The Oxfam America Action Fund works to change the laws and policies that keep people trapped in poverty. Together, we can use our voices to tackle the root cause of poverty and injustice—inequality.

We also mobilize citizens like you to join our efforts. By challenging the national and international laws that keep people trapped in poverty, we can work together to create lasting solutions.
