Mission Statement

Oxfam America is a global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice. As one of 17 members of the international Oxfam confederation, we work with people in more than 90 countries to create lasting solutions.

The Oxfam Action Corps is an exciting grassroots effort to stand up to poverty, hunger, and injustice around the world—starting right in your community. The Action Corps is a group of trained grassroots advocates in 14 U.S. Cities who organize with other local volunteers in support of our GROW campaign for policies that will save lives, defend the rights of women and farmers, and protect communities worldwide from rising food prices and climate change. It includes a free national advocacy and leadership training for select participants.

Join with educators, health workers, scientists, students, parents, lawyers, musicians, retirees, veterans, farmers, business owners, and others who donate their time and considerable skills to building a lasting presence for Oxfam in their community.
