Vote to fund Planned Parenthood Action Fund, She the People and Transgender Law Center this July
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 between three great progressive organizations. This July, you can help groups fighting for reproductive freedom, empowering progressive women of color and protecting the rights of transgender people by casting your vote for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, She the People and Transgender Law Center.
Planned Parenthood was founded over 100 years ago on the idea that women have the right to access the information and care they need to live healthy lives. Today, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund fights to protect that right — no matter what.
With the constant attacks on reproductive rights and women’s health care by right-wing lawmakers across the country, support from CREDO members is more important than ever. A donation from CREDO members will be critical in helping the Action Fund employ tactics including lobbying and grassroots mobilization to ensure that Planned Parenthood’s health services remain available to those who need them most.
She the People elevates the voice and power of women of color as leaders, strategists, organizers and voters. The organization is building an inclusive, multiracial coalition to realize the promise of American democracy.
Funding from CREDO members will help She the People keep women of color in the news and strengthen their organizing and progressive issues in the center of national media, and support gatherings of women of color in swing states.
Transgender Law Center does what it takes to keep transgender people alive, thriving and fighting for liberation. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all.
The Trump administration is actively working to take steps that make survival harder for the most vulnerable in the transgender community. For example, in the first days of June, another transgender woman refugee died in ICE custody. Support from CREDO members would help to ensure TLC has the capacity to protect healthcare access, represent and assist vulnerable immigrants, litigate to hold ICE responsible for abuses and partner with immigration organizations to address the humanitarian crisis for all migrants at the border.
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 July 31.
