Vote for Amazon Watch, Center for Disaster Philanthropy and UltraViolet this March
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 to three incredible progressive causes – and every vote makes a difference. This March, you can support climate justice, disaster relief and women’s rights by voting to fund Amazon Watch, Center for Disaster Philanthropy and UltraViolet.
For 25 years, Amazon Watch has worked to protect the Amazon rainforest and advance Indigenous rights in solidarity with Indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and climate justice.
With support from CREDO, Amazon Watch will step up its COVID-19 rapid-response for Indigenous peoples in the Amazon, elevate Indigenous women’s voices, and demand climate justice.
Center for Disaster Philanthropy
Center for Disaster Philanthropy is the only full-time national resource dedicated to maximizing disaster-related giving. CDP leverages the power of philanthropy to mobilize resources that strengthen communities’ ability to withstand disasters and recover from them equitably.
Full disaster recovery takes years, and many of those most affected don’t have the resources to rebuild. A donation from CREDO members will fund housing, health care, mental health support and other long-term community needs caused by a disaster.
UltraViolet drives feminist cultural and political change. Through people power and strategic advocacy, UltraViolet works to improve the lives of women of all identities and backgrounds by disrupting patriarchy and creating a cost for sexism.
Funding from CREDO will allow UltraViolet to drive more feminist cultural and political change. It will enable the organization to ramp up its tactics to combat the spread of disinformation as well as racist and sexist attacks in the media and on social media platforms.
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 March 31.
