They are building a global movement to counter the excessive concentration of power and wealth in the hands of a small elite and achieve a just, equal and sustainable world.
The alliance is built from and supports the ongoing work of affected communities, activists and existing movements, responding to the local realities of the inequalities people are experiencing. The Alliance is action orientated. The fight against inequality will be won by deepening people’s collective power, practical actions that challenge and change the status quo and shift power. At its core are national alliances, the key driver of change, supported by regional and international solidarity and action.
Around the world, ordinary people are already fighting back

- from women garment workers in Bangladeshi factories fighting for the living wage; to youth activists in Zambia fighting for mining companies to pay their fair share of tax that funds public schools and health clinics; to indigenous communities fighting to prevent fossil fuel companies destroying their land.

The Fight Inequality Alliance is bring together activists like these, building a powerful network and capacity to fight for transformational social and economic changes to tackle inequality globally and in countries across the world. A list of some of the groups that have taken part in some of the Fight Inequality Alliance activities is here.

Through an inclusive consultation process, the Alliance has built a Shared Vision of what the Alliance seeks to achieve. The Fight Inequality Alliance has also produced brief notes to summarise our shared journey so far and the journey ahead, and our funding plan. The structure and governance of the Alliance is decided collectively, based on the principles of diversity, inclusion and shared values. Steering group elections will take place this year.
