No matter where or how you live in this world, we are all human. Though geography, language, and culture may distinguish us, ultimately, we’re more alike than we are different. We all deserve to be treated equally and with dignity and compassion. We all deserve the same basic rights, from a livable planet to food and shelter, education, and healthcare.
America’s gravest challenges—climate change, economic inequality, gender inequality, refugee crises—are the same challenges people face around the world. These problems, and the poverty they create, are only getting bigger, but they are challenges we can solve if we commit to seeing and reaching beyond our borders.
It’s time to strengthen our alliances and fight for dignity for every person. This election, Oxfam is asking Americans to demand that all candidates rise to the moment and ensure that the US lives up to our ideals. This election, we demand Dignity for All.
Here is our comprehensive vision to achieve it.

When we reduce gender inequality, we help humanity. Gender justice means justice for all. Oxfam calls on the next President to:
All of us deserve to be governed by fair rules applied equally to everyone, rather than the whims of powerful corporations and individuals. All of us deserve good jobs, health care, and high-quality education. Oxfam calls on the next President to:
We must not pit ourselves against one another or blame the most vulnerable among us. We must treat refugees and migrants with compassion, offer them help when they need it, and protect their rights. We must stand up for the shared humanity in us all. Oxfam calls on the next President to:
America must contribute towards shared progress and prosperity, rising standards, and all forms of equality, not seek to gain at the expense of families and communities elsewhere. Oxfam calls on the next President to:
