Representative and inclusive democracies and equal societies are important for a just world, but civic space is shrinking, and regressive taxation is keeping people in poverty.
As we witness growing impunity and a roll-back of previous gains recorded in the country’s governance, citizen action to push back democratic reversals and to ensure State and corporate accountability, especially to those living in extreme poverty is crucial.
AAIU aims to strengthen citizen actions to deepen democracy and hold the State, corporations and political leaders accountable for social justice.
