The 80 richest people own as much wealth as the poorest half of the world's population...

Extreme inequality is an injustice - and it's standing in the way of ending poverty. That's why it's got Russell so riled. It's why we travelled to Kenya, as part of the film, to show how inequality affects some of the world's poorest people. And it's why we've already launched Even It Up - our campaign to end extreme inequality for good.

Even It Up

Extreme inequality is a huge problem. But it doesn't have to be this way. The current situation is the result of political decisions that can and must change

Inequality is something all political parties need to care about. Our Even It Up campaign sets out a clear plan to tackle it, including changing tax rules to make sure the richest pay their fair share, and demanding fair wages for everyone. If we act together and we act now, we can make it happen.
