The Fight Inequality Alliance comprises leading national and international social movements, NGOs, women’s rights groups 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 more equal, more sustainable world. Rising inequality is hurting us all - holding up poverty reduction, harming the environment, hurting the economy, 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 many 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 national coalitions of the Fight Inequality Alliance to bring change at country level and taking action regionally and internationally to fight the structural causes of inequality.
We seek to transform unjust realities from an intersectional and gendered approach, and to put first those who suffer the most from inequalities: women, youth, sexual diversity groups, indigenous people and migrants.
