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!
