Campaign to Even It Up

We built on the massive success of our Even It Up campaign with a new global inequality report, launched in January 2016 ahead of the World Economic Forum, which broke all our previous campaign records with unprecedented global media coverage. We used this to launch a new public campaign focused on tax havens.

“As we were flying into Davos this week, the Oxfam report made a lot of headlines. It pointed out that 62 of the wealthiest people in the world own as much wealth as the poorest 3.6 billion people in the world combined… the report explains that inequality is driven in large part by tax avoidance in tax shelters.”
