Vote for these three progressive groups this June
Each month, we ask CREDO members to vote on how we distribute funding to three great progressive causes. This June, CREDO members have the chance to support organizations fighting for reproductive freedom, battling climate change and defending transgender rights by voting for NARAL Pro-Choice America, Rainforest Action Network and the Transgender Law Center.
Learn more about these groups below and click here to vote for one, two or all three groups today.
NARAL Pro-Choice America
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its 1.2 million member-activists fight every day to protect and expand reproductive freedom – including access to abortion and birth control, paid parental leave, and protections from pregnancy discrimination.
Funding from CREDO members would help NARAL mobilize its 1.2 million members-activists under a mantra of Power, Progress, Principles: building power through people, carving out a path toward real progress and holding our leaders accountable to these principles. Funding would also help the organization gear up for a major Supreme Court challenge to NARAL’s Reproductive FACT Act, the first reproductive rights test for the Gorsuch Court.
Rainforest Action Network
Rainforest Action Network preserves forests, protects the climate and upholds human rights by challenging corporate power and systemic injustice through frontline partnerships and strategic campaigns.
CREDO funding would support the escalation of RAN’s on-the-ground and digital organizing campaign to oppose JP Morgan Chase’s financing for tar sands through high profile non-violent direct actions that secure media attention. These direct actions would show JP Morgan Chase that its involvement in tar sands will harm its brand image by exposing its financial links to human rights abuses and climate chaos.
Transgender Law Center
The Transgender Law Center does what it takes to keep transgender people alive, thriving and fighting for liberation. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all.
In these uncertain political times when federal support for transgender equality has been rolled back, transgender immigrants are bearing the brunt of double attacks on their rights and well-being. Funding from CREDO members would allow TLC to rapidly move forward with impact litigation when an appropriate case presents itself, organize a National Training Institute or provide particular technical assistance to communities when state or local issues create a heightened need for trans organizing, or provide Trans Immigration Defense Effort support in response to urgent threats facing immigrants.
Your vote this June will determine how we divide $150,000 in donations among these three progressive causes. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two or all three by June 30.
