Our Work on Campus

We the members of Oxfam at SU, work in alignment with Oxfam America and participate in a global movement for change. We campaign to stop unfair trade rules, demand superior health and education services for all, and stand with deprived peoples such as refugees. We also campaign to combat climate change which has adverse effects on not only our planet but also on its inhabitants.

Here, at Oxfam at SU we will hold benefit concerts, Oxfam Jams, teach-ins, panels, and movie screenings, in addition to lobbying and other awareness events. Our efforts in supporting Oxfam can change people’s lives. We can help farmers in Ethiopia rebuild their communities, give children in Syria access to water and light, or provide disaster relief to earthquake survivors.
