Equality works for everyone.
Let’s make it a reality in Cambridge.

We campaign against harmful gaps between rich & poor.

Our research shows the impact of wealth gaps in Cambridge:

• unaffordable housing

• rising hunger

• social care cuts bite

• 11 year health gap

We think Cambridge can do better.

We believe Cambridge can be a beacon of fairness.

Our city needs a radical blueprint for change.
