Vote for Center for Biological Diversity, The National LGBTQ Task Force and Restaurant Opportunities Center United in March
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 in donations to three incredible progressive causes – and every vote makes a difference. This March, you can support groups fighting for our environment, standing up for LGBTQ rights and the rights of workers and better wages by voting for Restaurant Opportunities Center United, the National LGBTQ Task Force and Center for Biological Diversity today.
Center for Biological Diversity
The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places that wants those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
With constant attacks on our environment by the Trump administration, funding from CREDO members is now more important than ever. A donation from CREDO will help power the Center for Biological Diversity’s 100+ lawsuits and counting against Trump’s war on wildlife and wild places.
The National LGBTQ Task Force
The National LGBTQ Task Force is the country’s oldest national LGBTQ advocacy group. It is building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives.
Today, one of the most important battles that the Task Force is waging is to be seen, heard and counted, such as on the upcoming 2020 census, which impacts visibility and billions of dollars of resources. The LGBTQ comminuty can’t be overlooked again, that’s why CREDO funds will be used by the Task Force to ensure that every one of us is counted on the upcoming census.
Restaurant Opportunities Center United
ROC United is a national organization of 130,000 workers, employers and consumers seeking better wages and working conditions in the restaurant industry. Support from CREDO members will help fund the organization’s One Fair Wage campaign to raise wages and eliminate the subminimum wage for tipped workers, which is a major reason why the restaurant industry is our country’s lowest-paying sector and largest source of sexual harassment claims.
Your vote this month will determine how we divide $150,000 in donations among these three progressive groups. Be sure to cast your vote to support one, two or all three by March 31.
