Monthly News from The Equality Trust (February 2018)

The Equality Trust works to improve the quality of life in the UK by reducing income inequality.

 

 

 

 Because more equal societies work better for everyone

MONTHLY NEWS (february 2018)

Dear ,

One inequality-related issue pushed its way into the public consciousness perhaps more than others this month: homelessness. We have managed to create a society where we have people dying outside Parliament in the freezing cold while luxurious tower blocks lie empty close by. In between these extremes we have soaring rents, over-crowding and a broken housing market cleaving the country in two between home-owners and the rest. As well as being fundamentally unjust and creating a vast ocean of misery, it’s choking off social mobility and a lot of hope with it. Inequality looks set to rise along with the very real prospect of future generations being worse off than their parents and grandparents. At least there has been some new thinking around ideas such as universal basic income (UBI) as we contemplate a jobless and low/no wage future for way too many people, although UBI comes with its own challenges.

On a brighter note, this month also saw the Suffrage Centenary, celebrating 100 years since some (not all) women got the vote in Britain. Like many progressive campaigns, we draw inspiration from that campaign and its central, burning message; that power and privilege are never given away, they have to be demanded from those who have it by those who do not. So, thank you for your support for our demand - that the UK must become a materially more equal society if all are to flourish. Best wishes, The Equality Trust Team (Please note that March's Monthly News will be slightly delayed and sent towards the end of the first week of April).

You can support our work in various ways: ACT to tackle inequality where you live by joining or forming a local group. DONATE to help us do more, the generosity of our supporters sustains our work. AFFILIATE your organisation to our affiliate programme to work closely with us. FUNDRAISE for us to give us more secure, longer term income. FORWARD this bulletin to people you know who might be interested in our work. Thank you.
