Vote for these groups fighting the Trump agenda in February
Every month CREDO Mobile lets you decide how we divide more than $150,000 in contributions among three incredible progressive nonprofits. Each of the groups selected for February funding is doing critical work to obstruct Trump’s dangerous agenda in the areas of civil rights, media accountability and environmental justice.
This month you can vote for the Center for Media and Democracy, Free Press or Friends of the Earth Action. Learn more about these organizations and their work, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by Feb. 28.
Center for Media and Democracy
The Center for Media and Democracy investigates corruption and the undue influence of corporations on media and democracy. They are a fierce watchdog and experts in exposing the bad guys, like ALEC and the Kochs.
Support from CREDO members will ensure that the Center for Media and Democracy is able to break time-sensitive stories to the public and combat right-wing groups’ disinformation on major public policy issues, which will be on the rise with the Trump administration.
Free Press fights for your right to connect and communicate, leading campaigns for net neutrality, internet freedom and press freedom, challenging powerful corporations and watchdogging policymakers in Washington.
This year Free Press faces one of its biggest fights ever. Republicans will try to take away everything we’ve won – starting with net neutrality – and probably do much worse. Support from CREDO will allow Free Press to increase its visibility and power through lobbying and grassroots advocacy and stay independent as it takes on the challenges of the Trump era.
Friends of the Earth Action
Friends of the Earth Action is working to build a healthy and just world for people and the environment. They believe that the fight to safeguard the planet and the struggle for social and economic justice go hand in hand.
Support from CREDO members will help Friends of the Earth Action work to defend the environment from the Trump agenda. They will take the White House to court, tying up any attempts the new administration makes to undo progress made in the past eight years. They will also work to gain ground in the states, focusing energy locally to ensure we continue to move the needle forward.
These groups are key players in the fights to resist the Trump agenda. Your vote will determine the share of our more than $150,000 in February that each of them will receive. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two, or all three by Feb. 28.
