Vote for Freedom For All Americans, Rainforest Foundation US and Trust for Public Land this June
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 to three incredible progressive causes – and every vote makes a difference. This June, you can support LGBTQ rights, climate justice and public land conservation by voting to fund Freedom For All Americans, Rainforest Foundation US and Trust for Public Land.
Freedom For All Americans
Freedom for All Americans is the bipartisan campaign to secure full nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people nationwide. The organization is closer than ever to getting this done, by passing the Equality Act, legislation Congress is considering right now.
Funding from CREDO will help FFAA run highly individualized education and lobbying campaigns targeting conservative senators in 11 states, to provide both personal and public pressure and achieve the 60 senate votes needed to pass the Equality Act.
Rainforest Foundation US
Rainforest Foundation supports indigenous peoples of the world’s rainforests in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfill their rights. Global tropical forests are absolutely vital to combating the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
Your support helps ensure that tropical forests can keep capturing and storing carbon, while also producing fresh air and clean water for generations to come.
The Trust for Public Land
Access to nature is a fundamental human right. Yet, 1 in 3 Americans don’t have a park close to home—including 28 million kids. Trust for Public Land is changing that by collaborating with communities to create parks, playgrounds, trails, and protect natural spaces.
Trust for Public Land is leading a movement to put a park within a 10-minute walk of every American. With your support, TPL partners with historically marginalized communities to protect and develop new outdoor spaces so that all people have access to the health benefits and climate solutions that nature provides.
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 June 30.
