Who we are

Stamp Out Poverty (SOP) campaigns for smart solutions to big problems. We are best-known campaign for the Robin Hood Tax (RHT) Campaign, where we call for an extra taxation of the financial sector, which could raise billions to fight poverty and climate change at home and abroad. It is a campaign with fairness at its heart that looks to turn the global economic crisis into an opportunity for the world. It's a fast paced and popular campaign combining longer-term proactive work with reactive responses to opportunities that arise. 

We also help coordinate the international Change Finance coalition, demanding a stable, democratic financial system that delivers for people and planet. SOP’s other campaigns include the Climate Damages Tax (pushing for taxation of the fossil fuel industry to pay for a just transition and to help those facing destruction from a changing climate) as well as challenging the privatisation of aid.
