September donations voting made a big difference
Here at CREDO even small actions make a big difference. With one click, you can help improve the lives of low-wage workers, stop the offshoring of U.S. jobs and support civil rights.
In September, over 65,000 CREDO members did just that. They voted in our monthly donations election and helped us distribute over $150,000 to OUR Walmart, Public Citizen – Stop the TPP and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
These donations are made possible by thousands of CREDO customers and the revenue they generate by using our services. Their distribution depends entirely on the votes of CREDO activists—like you. And for that, our September recipients thank you.
“Thank you for your generous support of the Organization United for Respect. Working people in today’s economy are struggling to get by with low pay, erratic schedules and involuntary part-time hours. As the country’s largest retailer, Walmart sets the standard for low-wage work in this country. With your support, we are challenging Walmart to publicly commit to raise pay and improve working conditions and lift standards for all retail workers. To learn more, visit forrespect.org.”
Public Citizen – Stop the TPP
“When we mobilize against the corporate power grab known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), we know we can count on CREDO to help lead the fight. When we campaign for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, or take on price-gouging drug companies, or fight to break up the giant Wall Street banks, CREDO is right there. Thank you for your partnership and your leadership. To learn more, visit citizen.org/tpp.”
Southern Poverty Law Center
“Thank you for voting to support the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The donation from CREDO will have a profound impact in classrooms and courtrooms nationwide. With it, we’ll send our Teaching Tolerance materials free of charge to every school that requests them, represent victims of bigotry and exploitation in court for free, and track and expose hate groups. Your commitment to SPLC’s work will make a difference in the lives of the people we help. To learn more, visit splcenter.org.”
