CREDO Calls on Facebook to #StopHateForProfit
Over 30 years ago, our co-founders started CREDO so that consumers could do business with a company that shares their progressive values. Today, CREDO is following those same founding values.
Starting on July 1, CREDO will pause all advertising on Facebook and Instagram through at least the end of the month. We stand in solidarity with our allies and demand that Facebook take clear, actionable steps to end hate, racism and disinformation on its platform immediately, as laid out by the #StopHateForProfit campaign.
It’s long past time for Facebook to make these changes, and we simply cannot stand by and contribute to a platform that allows voter suppression and the amplification of hate, white supremacy, violence and racism.
We’re proud to join our long-time allies and grantees Color of Change, NAACP, Free Press and others who are leading this campaign, and we urge other companies to pull their advertising from Facebook until the company addresses hate and disinformation on its platform.
We are a mobile phone carrier that puts progress over profits and shares your values. Please consider joining CREDO Mobile, the carrier with a conscience. Since 1985, CREDO has donated more than $14 million to groups fighting for civil rights, and nearly $90 million total to nonprofit organizations supporting climate justice, peace, women’s rights, voting rights and more.
If you’re already a CREDO Mobile customer and would like to refer your friends, don’t forget that you’ll get a $100 bill credit for every friend you refer that joins CREDO — and they’ll get a great deal on a great phone on the nation’s best network. To learn more, visit CREDOMobile.com today.
