Why campaign?

This is not a fair world. There’s wealth everywhere. So why do millions have to drink dirty, dangerous water? And why should millions more go hungry; without schools; or die of diseases we can prevent?

People want justice, not handouts. That's why we campaign for change, as well as working with poor communities for a better future. Our experience tells us to pile on the pressure, day in, day out. So we're working at every level - from local to global - getting poor people heard, challenging decisions by leaders whenever we see the developing world's interests under fire. Poverty is preventable. Time to campaign with us?

Campaigning to shout about It takes all sorts, and all kinds of action, to get decision-makers to listen – and actually do something. So go on. Make a dent in poverty, any way you can …

Watch the slideshow
Joined-up thinking – how campaigning supports everything we do How do we know what to campaign about?

Spending every day working with people in poor countries tells us certain changes are desperately needed. For example, we work in communities caught up in armed conflict – so we know that tougher controls on the global arms trade are needed. Campaigning on this stops a lot of suffering. And lets people get on with building better lives.

How do we do it?

Effectively. We put decision-makers under as much pressure as we can. Oxfam has more than 100,000 activists in the UK – and many more worldwide – taking all kinds of action. We campaign in alliance with other organisations, too, because we have even more clout lobbying governments and powerful institutions together. This makes us part of a global movement. And we use the media to ‘up’ the pressure as well. At all times, they know what we’re doing – and why.

Are we making a difference?

Yes. Sometimes it takes a while to get the changes we want – the changes poor communities we work with need. But hard work pays off. We’ve made a direct difference to international campaigns to ban landmines, cut developing country debt, control the arms trade, and change the rules of world trade. And our fight against poverty and injustice continues.

The ASPCA is the oldest humane organization in the Western Hemisphere, and we’re more dedicated than ever to our work preventing animal cruelty and finding homes for millions of animals all across the country. But we couldn’t do it without the support of compassionate citizens like you—so please join us on April 10 (our birthday!) in celebration of ASPCA Day. Show your love of animals—and your support for the mission of the ASPCA—by dressing yourself, your pet (even your community!) in orange on April 10. Whether you organize a pet parade in your neighborhood, petition to get your town hall to light up orange, help your children bake orange cupcakes to share with their classmates, or simply decorate your office door with an orange bow, we’ll be tickled pink (er…orange!) and very much appreciative.
