I’m thrilled to share that our tax campaign won the BOND Inspiring Campaign Award. BOND is the umbrella body for all international development organisations, so this is a great honour, and we were up against stiff competition. Watch our nomination video to find out what our tax campaign is all about.
It’s down to you
This award is a huge recognition of the time, commitment and passion all of you have put into driving this campaign forwards, continuing to push tax up the political agenda, and achieving real changes for the lives of people living in poverty. Without you, none of this would have been possible.
When we received the award, our Director of Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns Nuria Molina-Gallart said: “It’s great that this campaign has been recognised, because it goes to the heart of social and economic injustice. Millions of people around the world are going without essential services, because of outrageous behaviour. Campaigning on the root causes of poverty is one of the most difficult types of campaigning, but it is also the most effective way to ensure citizens of the world have their rights.”
Meeting Jon Snow
As well as receiving the award, we also got the chance to meet Jon Snow, the Channel 4 News Presenter, who told us he’s long been a supporter of our campaign to tackle corporate tax dodging.
There’s more work to be done
Our campaigning continues, and we need your support as much as ever. We need to make sure the government don’t forget their pre-election commitments to tackle tax dodging, so please take action now.
