About the FTC’s work
Over the past half century, the shadow financial system has grown more complex, and the tools to hide and move money undetected have proliferated. Corporations can earn record profits while hiding billions offshore to avoid paying taxes. Corrupt government officials can pilfer state revenues to buy luxury apartments in New York City unbeknownst to their citizens. Criminals engaged in drug trafficking, poaching, and other crimes can launder their ill-gotten gains.
Whether it’s through anonymous companies and tax havens, or simply through the lack of regular communication between authorities across borders, illicit financial flows—money that’s illegally earned, transferred or utilized – now amount to nearly a trillion dollars flowing out of developing countries each year. The Coalition urges international organizations, governments, and the financial community to improve transparency in the global financial system by taking a few clear steps to level the playing field.
- Support the Program Manager in the coordination of the FTC’s Southern Regions Program, which encompasses advocacy, outreach, and movement-building activities in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.

- Coordinate the annual coalition conference, including researching locations and conducting an initial scoping trip, creating and tracking event budget, negotiating vendor contracts, serving as primary logistical contact, managing registration, overseeing the production of conference materials, coordinating visa applications and travel, and on-site event management, with support from other team members.
