JOB VACANCY: Freelance Graphic Designers, Illustrators and Videographers for Fight Inequality Alliance

4th November, 2021

LOCATION: Anywhere

DURATION: On a project basis

STARTING DATE: November 2021

Background:

The Fight Inequality Alliance is a new and growing group of leading international and national non-profit organisations, human rights campaigners, women’s rights groups, environmental groups, faith-based organisations, trade unions, social movements and other civil society organisations that have come together to fight the growing crisis of inequality.

Collusion between political and economic elites has led to the undermining of democracy and the creation of an economic ideology and systems that have pushed a blind faith in markets and money so far that over the last 30 years they have caused an inequality explosion. 

This global inequality crisis is reaching new extremes and undermining global efforts to end poverty and marginalisation, advance women’s rights, defend the environment, protect human rights and democracy, prevent conflict, and promote fair and dignified employment. 

Inequality is intersectional and all forms of inequality influence each other. No matter what you are fighting for (e.g. women's rights / climate justice) you will not succeed if you don't also address inequality.

What history has taught us is that only when people join together from the grassroots up, mobilising and organising to build power and demand accountability and greater equality, will things change.

History teaches us that the change we need won’t be given to people - it will be won by people.
