Campaigning for change
Changing minds, systems and lives
At Oxfam we believe all lives are equal and no-one should live in poverty.
We join forces with people like you who share this belief, to empower communities to build better lives for themselves.
While we work to alleviate the symptoms of poverty, we also campaign to tackle the causes of it too. That’s why we’re in front of decision-makers, governments and corporations, and speak out on the big issues.
Together we are tackling poverty by changing minds, systems and lives.
Our work spans wide because there are many causes of poverty.
In Australia, our public campaigning currently centres on these main areas:
Ensuring workers in developing countries are safe and fairly treated
Welcoming people who look to us for safety
Achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030
Making companies contribute their fair share of tax here and abroad
Stopping polluters from destroying people’s lives
You and Oxfam, tackling poverty together
The power of supporters like you stretches across Australia and the world. It’s amazing what we can achieve when we come together.
Together, you and Oxfam can influence the decisions big business and our political leaders make. Decisions that can improve the lives of women, girls and the world’s poorest people.
