Faces of Inequality

A people’s movement is needed to end inequalities within and between countries and to ensure that “Leave No One Behind” becomes reality and not a mere slogan. This includes a world where everyone has and pays their fair share, including the rich and companies. To build this movement, this global campaign features the Faces of Inequality.
See the campaign!

What we do
