Impact Talk from Oxfam Novib
Power of Citizens’ Voices Series: Why Mobilize the Voices of Citizens?
This is the first of four episodes in the Power of Citizens’ Voices series: “Why Mobilize the Voices of Citizens?” In this series we talk with civil society leaders, activists and colleagues from around the world about how raising the voices of citizens drives impact on critical topics like conflict and security, the right to food, and securing the financing needed for development.
Why is raising the voice of citizens so important in the battle against inequality? What are the impacts of our work so far, and what are we learning? And how have we connected local struggles to global ones? In this episode, guests Michiel Servaes (Executive Director, Oxfam Novib), Antonia Musunga (Kenya National Coordinator, Fight Inequality Alliance), and Valentina Montanaro (Southern Programme and Campaign Lead on Inequality, Oxfam Novib) share compelling examples of how Oxfam and partner organizations have supported citizens to voice their demands for a just world without poverty and inequality.
