Even it up

Inequality is out of control. Oxfam's 'Even It Up' campaign aims to do something about it.

Video: The rich and the rest

Right now, the 62 richest people have the same wealth as the 3.6 billion poorest people.  The richest get richer, while millions of people struggle for food, water and shelter. We've found out that 200 million more people will be trapped unnecessarily in extreme poverty by 2030 unless we act now to address inequality.

Join our 'Even It Up' campaign and be in at the start of something special - a growing global movement demanding a fairer world and an end to inequality.

Extreme inequality is threatening to undo much of the progress made over the past 20 years in tackling poverty. But the situation is not inevitable - it's the consequence of political and economic choices. Things don't have to be this way.

Together, we can end extreme inequality

We can even things up if we all demand that governments across the world make the right economic and political decisions.

  • We can change the rules on tax to make sure the richest pay their fair share.
  • We can demand more spending on public health and education to give poor people a fighting chance.
  • We can demand fair wages for everyone.
  • We can make sure the poorest people have a voice, and that it is heard by those in power.


Sign up for our massive 'Even It Up' campaign - a worldwide push to get inequality to the top of governments' agendas - and spread the word.


We'll be telling governments to sort out the tax system so huge corporations pay their fair share, and poor countries don't lose billions in revenue.


We're in this for the long-haul. We know we can't solve the inequality crisis overnight. Over the coming months and years, we'll be taking on governments and big business to make sure they deliver the real change needed to reverse the trend of rising inequality.
