Vote for these great progressive organizations this August
Every month, CREDO members vote how to divide $150,000 in donations to three great progressive groups. This August, you can vote for organizations fighting for workers’ rights in China, providing cutting-edge progressive journalism and standing up to the dirty fossil fuel industry. This month you can vote for China Labor Watch, Democracy Now! and Stand Up to Oil. Learn more about their important work, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by August 31.
China Labor Watch
Since 2000, China Labor Watch (CLW) has been a leading organization standing up for Chinese workers’ rights. CLW views Chinese workers’ rights as inalienable human rights and is dedicated to workers’ fair share of economic development under globalization.
Funding from CREDO will enable CLW to conduct more investigations of factories in developing countries that supply multinational brands and help improve labor conditions for factory workers. A CREDO donation will also immediately help support three currently detained CLW investigators who are involved in Ivanka Trump’s supplier factory investigations.
Hosted by award-winning journalists Amy Goodman and Juan González, Democracy Now! is one of the world’s leading independent news outlets, producing a daily, global and independent news program.
With Donald Trump calling the media the “enemy of the people,” the current political climate is a dangerous one for journalism and journalists, and the independent, progressive reporting by Democracy Now! is more difficult to accomplish now than at any other time in recent history. CREDO funding will strengthen Democracy Now!’s ability to broadcast live or help the organization react to breaking news at a moment’s notice, bringing immediate global attention to critical social issues.
Stand Up to Oil
Stand Up to Oil is a growing coalition of groups opposed to and pushing back against new oil infrastructure in the Northwest United States.
Big Oil projects in Oregon and Washington pose a significant threat to the safety of communities across the region, have the potential to devastate the environment and exacerbate runaway climate change. Funding from CREDO will enable Stand Up to Oil to work with local communities to proactively put local protections in place that would prohibit new projects by cutting off access to ports and reducing oil trains.
Your vote this August will determine how we divide the $150,000 in donations among these three progressive groups. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two or all three by August 31.
