for Financial Justice

Informing, connecting and empowering citizens to act together to make the global finance system work better for everybody.

Currently the global financial system increases inequality, often fails to create decent jobs, undermines human rights, devastates the environment and is creating debt crises. The driving force behind all of these problems is that the institutions that control finance do not serve the majority of citizens across the globe.

We need a financial system that works for all and is democratically controlled.

The power imbalance within the financial system at present means that we see:

  • profit being favoured over people
  • private finance favoured over public finance
  • and debt favoured over development

The only way to reverse this situation is to give greater power to people.

By informing, connecting and strengthening active movements of people, we help to balance power and provide a contribution towards the greater change needed.
