18 Days of Global Goals (Day 11)

10. Reduce inequality within and among countries.

This target tries to address the growing gap that's emerged globally between the "haves" and the "have-nots."* The reason people are trapped in cycles of poverty is because of extreme inequalities that persist in society today. By taking action to reduce these inequalities we can create a world where people have equal access to all the benefits of life.**

Asking yourself what you can do to help the UN reach their goal?

On a National level: Stand up for equal human rights for people of all races, genders, and socioeconomic status. Do not discriminate between classes of people no matter who they are or where they come from. Support the previous nine Global Goals to create an atmosphere where equality can exist.

On a International level: Volunteer or donate to a group like http://www.amnestyusa.org/
