Elections 2016: How CREDO is fighting for our progressive values
CREDO does not endorse candidates, but we have a rich history of engaging in elections to fight right-wing extremism and stand up for progressive values. 2016 is no different. Donald Trump’s racist, misogynistic and xenophobic candidacy has mainstreamed hatred and made this election one of the most important fights against hate and extremism any of us have ever faced.
For months, CREDO has been engaging our network of more than 4.4 million members to push back against Trump and the right-wing hate mongers he enables. As we head towards an unprecedented and historic Election Day on Nov. 8, CREDO is executing a multi-faceted strategy to combat right-wing extremism. The key elements of our campaign include directly damaging Trump’s brand, shaping the media environment through rapid-response campaigns, attacks through our highly engaged social media channels and partnering with allies to engage voters in key battleground states.
