Who is the Fight Inequality Alliance?

The Fight Inequality Alliance is comprised of leading national and international social movements, NGOs, women’s rights groups, artists, activists and trade unions across the world. We are deeply concerned about the impact of current shocking levels of inequality and inspired by people’s collective struggles to build a just, equal, and sustainable world. Rising inequality is hurting us all - holding up poverty reduction, harming the environment, hurting communities, destabilising society, and undermining democracy.

Experts and international institutions now recognise that inequality must be tackled. And every government has pledged to reduce inequality within and between countries. But in practice not much progress is happening and in most countries we are even going backwards. When it comes to action they are still reaching for the same old failed solutions.

Only when people join together from the grassroots up, mobilising and organising to build power and demand accountability and greater equality, will things change. Together we are helping to build up people’s power and connect across organisations and borders to enable a more equal world. We are helping to build up the Fight Inequality Alliance to bring change at national level and connecting groups internationally for action, solidarity, learning and support.
