Helping end extreme global poverty
Due to unfair trade deals and loans, land grabs, tax evasion and corruption by the wealthy nations, the unequal costs of climate change and other injustices, the world’s poorest people and nations subsidize the world’s richest with a net $3 trillion. Every year.

This helps explain why:

  • Sub-Saharan Africa has 149 million more people in extreme poverty than in 1990.

  • More than 3 billion people live on less than $5.50 a Day.

Reforming huge injustices is a very cost-effective way to help create a more sustainable, just, peaceful and beautiful world.

We’ll recruit and work with activists to encourage the media and Congress to support and pass reform legislation.
