6 Great Holiday Gift Ideas From CREDO Grantees
Are you wondering what you should get for your progressive loved ones this holiday season?
We have some good news for you! We’ve curated some of our favorite gift ideas from current and past CREDO grantees to make shopping a little bit easier this year. Whether it’s supporting civil rights, climate justice or equality, our progressive grantees have some great holiday gifts that you can purchase safely from the comfort of your home.
Sunrise Movement is building an army of young people from the plains to the mountains to the coasts to win the Green New Deal and center racial and economic justice in the fight against the climate crisis. Since 2019, CREDO members have helped us donate over $100,000 to help Sunrise Movement fight for climate justice.
At Sunrise Movement’s online store, you can stock up before the holidays on branded winter wear, like this beanie made by Collection, a network of environmentally sustainable and worker-owned cooperatives in Western North Carolina, or a cool 3-ply, union-printed face mask with “Green New Deal” stamped on the front. You can also purchase stickers, posters, water bottles and other accessories with the organization’s famous logo.
American Civil Liberties Union
Whether it’s winning full equality for LGBTQ people, fighting for immigrants, ending mass incarceration, or preserving abortion or voting rights, the ACLU is on the frontlines defending all people from government abuse and overreach. Since 1988, CREDO members have helped us donate $1.5 million to the ACLU.
This year, the ACLU is offering a wide range of gifts to support their work, from t-shirts featuring slogans like “trans people belong” and “No body is illegal” to their popular “Know your rights” handbook in print form and a stress ball in the shape of the Constitution (currently out of stock, but restocking soon).
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. Since 1986, CREDO has donated over $3.5 million to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, and we’re proud to be among the organization’s largest corporate donors.
At the Planned Parenthood marketplace, you can find apparel with the now-iconic “I Stand with Planned Parenthood” logo or a t-shirt featuring the phrase “Stand with Black Women” designed by Black woman entrepreneur and owner of District of Clothing, Dionna Dorsey. There, you can also find a wide range of bags, hats, drinkware, stationary, and health care brochures to purchase.
Visit Planned Parenthood’s marketplace to support their important work.
She the People
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. CREDO has donated $36,465 to 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.
She the People’s online store is also small, but mighty. In addition to apparel including phrases like “Love. Justice. Belonging. Democracy.” and “We are the women making the dreams of our ancestors a reality,” the store features gorgeous prints by Kayla Jones, an incredibly talented queer, Black graphic designer, art director and activist.
Black Voters Matter
Black Voters Matter believes that effective voting allows a community to determine its own destiny. Towards this end, Black Voters Matter works to strengthen and expand civic engagement in Black communities. It is a power building organization that believes that voting and electoral organizing is one way to build power. This August, CREDO members helped us donate $81,040 to the organization, which helped them in part to reach 15 million Black voters during the election.
Black Voters Matter’s online store is small, but powerful. It features only two articles of clothing for sale — a hoodie and a t-shirt with the organization’s signature phrase “Black Voters Matter” on the front and the words “It’s About Us” on the back.

Amnesty International is a global grassroots movement and one of the world’s foremost defenders of human rights. With millions of activists worldwide, the organization works tirelessly toward fair treatment for people everywhere. Since 1986, CREDO members have helped donate more than $1.3 million to support Amnesty International’s work.
At Amnesty International’s USA store, you can find a 3-pack of washable, reusable “I <3 Human Rights” face masks, candle-to-dove mugs, t-shirts and sweatshirts adorned with the group’s logo, and a wide assortment of bags, hats and accessories featuring pride, social justice and human rights slogans.
