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 campaigns

Our work spans wide because there are many causes of poverty.

In Australia, our public campaigning currently centres on these main areas:

End Sweatshops Now

Ensuring workers in developing countries are safe and fairly treated

Right to Refuge

Welcoming people who look to us for safety

Close the Gap

Achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030

Make Tax Fair

Making companies contribute their fair share of tax here and abroad

Food and Climate Justice

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.
