Vote to fund Free Speech For People, Friends of the Earth Action and MPower Change this June
Every month, CREDO members help us decide how to distribute $150,000 between three great progressive organizations. This June, you can help groups holding Trump accountable, defending the environment and standing up for the American Muslim community by casting your vote for the Free Speech For People, Friends of the Earth Action and MPower Change.
Free Speech For People works to challenge big money in politics, the unprecedented corruption of the White House and unchecked corporate power. The organization envisions a democratic process in which all people have an equal voice and an equal vote.
Support from CREDO members would help to expand the group’s campaign for an impeachment investigation of Donald Trump, fight the corruption of the current administration and work to end the dominance of big money in our elections.
A close ally of CREDO in the fight for environmental and climate justice, Friends of the Earth Action defends the environment and champions a healthy and just world. The group works at the nexus of environmental protection, economic policy and social justice to fundamentally transform the way people and the environment are valued.
Support from CREDO members would help Friends of the Earth Action defend the environment from the Trump agenda by exposing corruption by Trump and his appointees, fight for the Green New Deal and making sure it is strong enough to address the true threat of the climate crisis, pressure corporations to protect the environment and help pass new laws at the state level to protect bees and other pollinators from pesticides.
MPower Change is a grassroots movement of U.S. Muslims organizing for social, racial, and economic justice for all. The organization coproduces campaigns, both online and in the streets, that reach millions of people and train hundreds of organizers around the country.
With the relentless attacks on the American Muslim community by Donald Trump and his administration, funding from CREDO members is more important now than ever. CREDO support would help the MPower Change team to rapidly respond to political and community emergencies with high-profile campaigns and invest in training and support for local Muslim community organizers, groups and networks.
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 June 30.
