What we're aiming for
Jesus calls us to be light in dark places, exposing what the darkness hides – which is what many of our partners are doing all over the world. Our challenge is to stand alongside them and lift the veil of secrecy in the international tax system.
To achieve true tax justice, we need to break down many barriers. Through our campaigning, we aim to:
- remove the loopholes that allow tax dodging
- create a transparent global financial system
- lift the veil of secrecy of the international tax system.
Take part in our campaign
We don’t have any campaign actions on tax justice right now but people like you have ensured this is higher on the political agenda than ever before. We’ll be in touch with campaigners again as and when key opportunities arise. If you would like to stay in touch with our campaigning on tax and other issues, please sign up here.
Latest campaign wins
With your help, we’ve raised the profile of tax dodging and secured some key changes in the law. In 2016, as part of our Sourced campaign, Christian Aid campaigners persuaded 15 councils in England and Northern Ireland (who together spend billions of pounds!) to put tax justice at the heart of their procurement policies.
This sent a clear signal to companies that councils and local people will not tolerate tax dodging.
In Northern Ireland, this campaign snowballed after Belfast City Council, and later the Northern Ireland Assembly, took on the campaign pledge.
