Vote now for three great progressive groups this March
Each month, CREDO members help decide how to donate tens of thousands of dollars to three great progressive causes. This March, you can help fund groups fighting for civil rights, press freedom and net neutrality, and workers’ rights by voting for Center for Popular Democracy, Free Press Action Fund and OUR Walmart. Learn more about each of these groups, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by March 31.
Center for Popular Democracy
Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) builds the power of communities to ensure our country embodies our vision of an inclusive, equitable society where people of color, immigrants, working families, women and LGBTQ communities thrive together.
CREDO funding will help CPD to protect the gains it has made fighting the repressive Trump regime and build a national mobilization effort to activate supporters on a wide range of progressive issues, including civic engagement, climate justice, racial justice, combating wage theft and more.
Free Press Action Fund
Free Press fights for press freedom and your rights to connect and communicate, leading more than a million members in campaigns for net neutrality and other protections online.
Support from CREDO members will help Free Press keep up the pressure in the courts and on Congress and key decision makers to overturn the FCC’s decision to repeal net neutrality rules. A CREDO donation will also help Free Press train thousands more Team Internet volunteers who are organizing actions and events, canvassing their neighbors and recruiting fellow activists in communities across the country.
OUR Walmart is leading the fight to raise pay and transform working conditions for people working in low wage retail jobs, starting with the country’s largest corporate employer, Walmart.
Funding from CREDO members will enable OUR Walmart to expand its network in the southern United States, where Walmart’s presence is particularly large. In particular, CREDO funding will help fund a leadership development program aimed at developing 100 leaders in the region who organize and expand the organization’s existing base, develop relationships with other social justice organizations and focus on member leadership development through workplace advocacy campaigns and civic participation.
Your vote this March will determine how we divide the $150,000 in donations among these three progressive causes. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two or all three by March 31.
