Vote for these three great causes in July
Each month, CREDO members help decide how we donate tens of thousands of dollars to three nonprofit groups fighting for progressive causes. This July, we’re doing something a little different. This month, you can vote for two great nonprofit organizations – the Center for Constitutional Rights and Social Security Works – and the “Whistleblower Special Defense Fund,” a special fund created by CREDO Mobile to provide funding for legal defense for whistleblowers who expose attacks on our democracy and communities. Learn more about each of these causes, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by July 31.
Center for Constitutional Rights
For 50 years, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) has led the fight to defend and empower those with the fewest protections and least access to legal resources and strengthen movements for social justice.
With the daily attacks on the Constitution and our democracy by the Trump administration, funding from CREDO members is now more important than ever. A CREDO donation will help CCR stand up for social justice and civil and human rights, including fighting racial injustice, LGBTQ persecution and gender-based violence, abusive immigration practices, illegal government surveillance and much more.
Social Security Works
Social Security Works fights every day to protect and expand Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and lower outrageously high drug prices that eat away at our earned benefits.
Support from CREDO members will help Social Security Works protect our social safety net by targeting and applying pressure in key swing states to ensure vulnerable lawmakers continue to keep their promise to preserve and improve our nation’s greatest anti-poverty programs.
Whistleblower Special Defense Fund
Brave whistleblowers in the government, corporations and other organizations perform acts of heroism when they risk life and liberty to expose corruption, malfeasance and illegal activity by those in power. However, as we have seen in recent history, instead of rewarding these courageous men and women, government officials of both political parties have waged war on whistleblowers by throwing the book at them, smearing their characters, charging them as spies and locking them up.
CREDO Mobile’s new Whistleblower Special Defense Fund will be used to respond to the Trump administration’s crackdown on whistleblowers and its obsession with what they call “leakers” – who are often, in fact, whistleblowers. Your vote for this fund could help the legal defense of those attempting to reveal the truth behind Russian interference in our election and in the Trump administration as well as other brave employees from federal agencies who may expose right-wing, political attacks on regulations designed to protect our environment, our citizens from Wall Street greed and more.
Your vote this July will determine how we divide the $150,000 in donations among these three progressive causes. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two or all three by July 31.
