Vote for Center for Constitutional Rights, Detention Watch Network and March for Our Lives this September
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 to three incredible progressive causes – and every vote makes a difference. This September, you can support groups fighting for social justice, immigrant rights and gun control by voting to fund the Center for Constitutional Rights, Detention Watch Network and March for Our Lives.
The Center for Constitutional Rights works with communities under threat to fight for justice and liberation through litigation, advocacy and strategic communications. The organization fights for a world without oppression – where people use their power to achieve justice and guarantee the rights of all.
Funding from CREDO members will help the Center for Constitutional Rights deploy litigation and advocacy in support of social justice movements fighting structural racism, gender oppression, economic inequity and governmental abuses of power.
Detention Watch Network is a national coalition building power through collective advocacy, grassroots organizing and strategic communications to abolish immigration detention in the United States. DWN fights for a world without immigration detention where every individual lives freely.
Support from CREDO will increase DWN’s capacity to fight against the attempted mass expansion of detention through our #DefundHate and #CommunitiesnotCages campaigns and supporting our grassroots organizational members with small sub-grants.
March for Our Lives harnesses the power of young people to fight for life-saving gun safety measures. After organizing the largest single-day protest against gun violence in history, MFOL is continuing the fight for safe communities by mobilizing young people against the complacency and inaction that’s created America’s gun violence epidemic.
Support from CREDO members will significantly increase MFOL’s capacity to register and mobilize voters, help grow and support our local MFOL chapters nationwide and enable it to continue building the infrastructure of the organization.
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 Sep. 30.
