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:

What She Makes

Ensuring the women who make our clothes earn a living wage

Climate Justice

Stopping polluters from destroying people’s lives

The power of supporters like you stretches across Australia and the world. It’s amazing what we can achieve when we come together.
