Who’s on the CREDO Donations ballot in August
What makes CREDO a different type of mobile company?
Every month we contribute more than $150,000 to three amazing progressive nonprofits and we let you decide how we divide this pool of money.
For August we’ve selected 350.org, Color Of Change and Rewire. Each of these groups is a critical part of the progressive infrastructure. Take a minute to learn about their exciting work and then vote for one, two or all three.
Few groups have been as active in or as aggressive about preserving a livable planet as 350.org. They have led the way with creative, attention-grabbing activism that has captured media attention and created real results in the fight against climate change.
Support from CREDO members will help 350.org empower grassroots leaders around the world. 350.org will continue and launch new divestment campaigns in the United States and other countries, convincing major institutions to no longer invest their endowments in fossil fuel companies. Additionally, they will continue to pressure the U.S. Department of Justice and Attorneys General to investigate Exxon through the “Exxon Knew” campaign.
Color Of Change
Color Of Change’s game-changing civil rights activism has led the way in strengthening Black America’s political voice to fight racism and make politicians, corporations, the criminal justice system and others accountable for injustice against African-Americans. Recently, CREDO partnered with Color Of Change in their campaigns to convince companies not to sponsor Donald Trump’s hate-filled Republican convention.
With the support of CREDO members, Color Of Change can continue to remain nimble and empower its members in the most crucial moments, whether fighting the bigotry of the Trump campaign or standing against police violence in African-American communities.
Rewire, formerly RH Reality Check, is a critical source for news and information about women’s rights and women’s health. Their ground-breaking investigative team has been on the forefront of covering anti-woman, right-wing extremists’ attempts to restrict access to health care, especially abortion and contraception.
Your votes will help Rewire fund aggressive, cutting-edge reporting, especially investigative and enterprise reporting to break new stories; political analysis; and investments in its new multi-media efforts. These stories will be critical, not just this year but as these issues continue to be debated.
Your votes will decide how CREDO will distribute funding to these three incredible groups. Please cast your vote to support one, two or all three by August 31.
CREDO members who use our products every day are the reason why we are able to make these donations each month. Learn more about CREDO Mobile, a carrier with a conscience.
