Double Donations in December: Fighting for Climate Justice
Our government’s climate policies will take a sharp turn for the worse during Donald Trump’s administration, but our fight on this issue is far from over. Activists and landowners stood up to the Obama administration to stop the Keystone XL pipeline – and won. Right now, the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which is leading the fight against the Dakota Access pipeline, is facing a violent reaction from law enforcement. The key to keeping fossil fuels in the ground during the next four years is going to be ensuring that local grassroots organizations are armed with resources and ready to fight.
That is why CREDO decided to select groups fighting for climate justice for one of the slates we will fund in our special December donations election. This month, instead of donating our typical monthly contribution of $150,000, we’ll be doubling our donation to over $300,000. And instead of three groups, you’ll be able to vote for three issue slates, each comprised of five nonprofits, to fund a total of 15 groups. These organizations are small grassroots organizations, meaning your vote will go even further.
