These three progressive groups are waiting for your vote this April
Every month, CREDO members vote to help distribute tens of thousands of dollars among three great progressive causes. This April, you can help fund groups fighting for gun control, against Big Oil and for economic justice by voting for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Oil Change International and People’s Action. Learn more about each of these groups, and then cast your vote for one, two or all three by April 30.
Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence
The Brady Center is committed to creating a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half through public awareness, legal action and public policy.
A grant from CREDO members would have a significant impact on the three main areas that the Brady Center focuses on: reducing the flow of crime guns into communities most heavily impacted by gun violence, expanding and protecting the Brady Background Check system and changing the cultural perception that owning or carrying a gun makes you safer.
Oil Change International
Oil Change International is a data-driven, people-powered research, communications and advocacy organization that wages hard-hitting campaigns against the fossil fuel industry and for a clean energy future.
In the face of the Trump administration’s aggressive and unprecedented support of fossil fuel expansion, support from CREDO members would help the organization to more effectively support the many communities threatened by the oil and gas industry while allowing it to significantly ramp up its digital and social media operations to tell the stories of people on the front lines of climate change across America.
People’s Action is a grassroots-powered force for democracy and economic fairness. They use issue campaigns and elections to put community over corporations, justice over racism, and people and planet over profits and polluters.
CREDO funding would help support People’s Action’s city-, county-, state-, and national- level efforts to move economic, environmental and racial justice policies as part of our People & Planet First Campaign and help the organization launch campaigns designed to protect our communities, improve people’s lives, shift the dominant narrative and generate the momentum necessary to move ambitious structural reform in the future.
Your vote this April 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 April 30.
