About War on Want
War on Want is a movement of people working to end global poverty and human rights abuses.
We believe a better world is possible. A world in which everyone lives a dignified life free from exploitation, injustice and climate disaster. Poverty is political: the most effective way to end it is by taking collective action to challenge the structures of inequality and injustice.
We campaign in the UK to challenge human rights abusing corporations and governments, to hold those responsible for inequality and poverty to account. We publish in depth research exposing injustice and human rights abuse globally. We work in partnership with grassroots social movements, trade unions and workers’ organisations in the Global South and across the world. We stand in solidarity with all people fighting for their rights.
