Chris Coxon

I’m ActionAid USA’s Director of Communications.

I've worked for ActionAid in the European Union, Brazil and the USA on issues ranging from biofuels to women's rights.

What motivates me most about working for ActionAid is hearing about the problems facing people around the world and taking their voices to a wider audience.
