July’s CREDO Donations recipients say thank you
Every month, CREDO donates to progressive nonprofits thanks to our customers and the revenue they generate by using our services. In July, we funded Earthjustice, Social Security Works and United We Dream. A record-breaking 88,000 CREDO members voted on how to divide our funds to these hard-hitting groups—and they want to say thank you.
“Thank you for your generosity. Today’s environmental challenges are greater than ever. Fortunately, we live in a country with strong environmental laws—and with your support, Earthjustice will continue to hold those who break our nation’s laws accountable for their actions. By using the power of law and the strength of partnership, we protect people’s health, preserve magnificent places and wildlife, advance clean energy and combat climate change. Now more than ever, the earth needs a good lawyer, and thanks to you, it has one. To learn more, visit earthjustice.org.”
Social Security Works
“At Social Security Works, we fight every day to protect and expand our Social Security system. CREDO members have stood with us since 2010, when everybody knew that Social Security benefits would be cut. Together we have galvanized a movement and changed the entire story. Your support will make sure everybody knows that Social Security benefits will be expanded and the only question is by how much. To learn more, visit socialsecurityworks.org.”
United We Dream
“From the immigrant youth of United We Dream, thank you! Thanks to your votes, United We Dream is able to continue fighting to end the xenophobia in politics, islamophobia, anti-blackness, violence toward our LGBTQ community, and hate against undocumented immigrants from all backgrounds. We are committed to ending the systems that criminalize, detain and deports our communities; and who are committed to building a progressive future we can all be proud of.
