Each year the rich and powerful descend upon Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum – and Oxfam makes headlines reminding them and the world of rising global inequality.
This year was no exception.
Oxfam's Director of Policy and Campaigns, Lauren Ravon and Manager of Campaigns, Kelly Bowden, spoke with media outlets across the country about the current state of inequality and what the Canadian Government can do to help end inequality.
In case you missed all of the buzz, here are our top 3 media moments from Davos 2017:
- "Two richest Canadians own more than bottom 30% of population, report finds", The Globe and Mail, 15 January 2017.
- "Wealth gap, 'inequality crisis' growing: Oxfam", Radio Canada International, 16 January 2017.
- "Wealth inequality growing", CBC On The Money with Peter Armstrong, 16 January 2017.
Join the shortchanged campaign to tell the government that you want an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy elite. You can help spread the message by sharing Oxfam's new inequality report or media coverage in your social networks today.
