Vote to support these progressive groups fighting Trump’s agenda in March
Every month CREDO Mobile lets you decide how we divide more than $150,000 in contributions among three incredible progressive nonprofits. In March we’ve chosen to support three groups focusing on three vital areas of the progressive agenda: fair tax reform, immigrant rights and climate justice. This month you can vote for Americans for Tax Fairness, Detention Watch Network and Rainforest Action Network. Learn more about these organizations and their work, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by March 31.
Americans for Tax Fairness
Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) is leading the national effort to demand that the rich and big corporations pay their fair share of taxes. While corporations have lobbyists, citizens have ATF fighting for a system that works for all, not the wealthy few.
Support from CREDO members will help ATF continue to prevent corporate mergers and tax cuts for the wealthy that come at a cost to average citizens. A CREDO grant will allow the organization to continue producing reports, fact sheets and op-eds to educate the public about these deals and other important tax policies.
Detention Watch Network
Detention Watch Network (DWN) is a national coalition that opposes the incarceration and deportation of immigrants. Through advocacy, education and organizing, DWN fights for racial justice and dignity for all immigrants.
Funding from CREDO will provide critical support to Detention Watch Network’s organizing and advocacy teams. Their work to end family detention, close detention centers and raise awareness of abuses in the system is particularly vital given that Trump’s new immigration policies mandate an increase in detention, among other anti-immigrant actions.
Rainforest Action Network
Rainforest Action Network campaigns for the forests, their inhabitants and the natural systems that sustain life by transforming the global marketplace through education, grassroots organizing and nonviolent action.
Support from CREDO members will help Rainforest Action Network’s efforts to cut financial flows to the fossil fuel industry. In anticipation of future pipeline construction under Trump’s leadership, they will train and mobilize local communities in key regions to stand up against fossil fuel extraction and infrastructure development.
These groups are key players in the fights to resist specific pieces of Trump’s dangerous agenda. Your vote will determine the share of our more than $150,000 in March that each of them will receive. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two, or all three by Mar. 31.
