CREDO’s April donations recipients want to say thank you
Thanks to our customers and the revenue they generate, CREDO donates tens of thousands of dollars to three progressive nonprofits every month. In April, we funded three groups fighting to ensure Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland: Alliance for Justice, American Constitution Society for Law and Policy and People For the American Way Foundation. Over 80,000 CREDO members voted to decide how to distribute our donations. Here are the voting results:
Alliance for Justice
Alliance for Justice is so grateful for CREDO’s support and partnership in the campaign to demand the Senate do its job to give fair consideration to Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. The vacancy comes at a critical time in the history of the court, the law and our nation. This grant will help continue AFJ’s leadership in progressive advocacy to ensure that the court and the federal judiciary advance core constitutional values, preserve human rights and unfettered access to the courts, and adhere to the even-handed administration of justice for all Americans.

American Constitution Society for Law and Policy
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy is very thankful for the generous support of CREDO and its members. With this funding, ACS will continue to shape the debate on today’s key legal and policy issues; expand our progressive pipeline of lawyers, law students, judges and policymakers committed to justice; and fight those in the conservative legal movement who wish to impose limits on our personal freedoms. Our priorities for 2016 include protecting voting rights and filling the numerous vacancies on the federal bench, including the Supreme Court. We will also continue making progressive voices heard on immigrants’ rights, reproductive freedom, LGBT rights, environmental protections, gun violence prevention, freedom of speech, economic and racial equality in the workplace, criminal justice reform and much more. ACS is committed to using the law to make long-lasting changes to improve the lives of all people and CREDO’s support will help us do just that. Thank you!

People For the American Way Foundation
People For the American Way Foundation is grateful to have the generous support of CREDO and its members as we continue our work in this crucial election year. In 2016, PFAW Foundation remains dedicated to promoting and defending the American values of liberty and equality for all members of our pluralistic society. To achieve our mission, PFAW Foundation defends democracy for all by getting money out of politics and voters into polling booths, monitors and counters the tactics of the religious right, and promotes justice through fair and just courts. Enhancing our strength throughout the country are our vital networks among key constituencies: college-age leaders, young local, state and national elected officials, and African American faith leaders. In the year ahead, as we continue our efforts on all these fronts, we will be thankful to CREDO and its members for helping protect the American way!
