Vote to fund three progressive organizations in November
This month, civil rights, environmental justice and women’s rights are all on CREDO’s November donations ballot.
Every month you have the opportunity to decide how CREDO divides more than $150,000 in contributions among three amazing progressive organizations. This month we’ve chosen Fight for the Future, Oil Change International and Planned Parenthood.
Each of these organizations is a leader and is on the front lines of important progressive issues.
Learn about the important work these groups are doing and then vote for one, two, or all three.
Fight for the Future
Fight for the Future (FFTF) and its million members are on the front lines of protecting freedom of expression in the digital age, taking on the cable giants and corrupt politicians who want to limit our basic rights and freedoms online.
The big telecom players must abide by the net neutrality laws passed by the FCC. Big cable and phone companies are breaking the rules by exempting their own content or services from artificially low monthly data caps. FFTF will use CREDO funding to build a campaign to stop this from happening.
Oil Change International
Oil Change International uses research, communications, and campaigns to expose the true costs of fossil fuels and to confront corporate power. They empower people with data and analysis in the fight for a clean energy future.
Despite Oil Change International’s many successes in mainstream and social communications, it has no staff dedicated exclusively to this area. It will use CREDO support in part to contribute to the hiring of an experienced and effective staff to expand its communications and research work.
Planned Parenthood, now 100 years strong, is a fierce advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights. It fights to ensure access to vital care, including birth control, cancer screenings and safe, legal abortion.
The organization works to protect and expand access to care in states across the country and at the federal level. In the rapidly shifting landscape of sexual and reproductive health and rights, the organization needs to be nimble and shift resources to where they are most urgently needed. General operating funds will enable Planned Parenthood to do that.
Your votes will decide how CREDO distributes funding to these three incredible groups. Please cast your vote to support one, two, or all three by November 30.
