Vote for Black Voters Matter Fund, Friends of the Earth Action and Mercy Corps this August
Every month, CREDO members vote to distribute $150,000 to three incredible progressive causes – and every vote makes a difference. This August, you can support voting rights, climate justice and humanitarian aid by voting to fund Black Voters Matter Fund, Friends of the Earth Action and Mercy Corps.
Black Voters Matter Fund
Black Voters Matter Capacity Building Institute’s mission is to increase civic engagement and power building in predominantly Black communities. The organization’s belief is that effective voting allows a community to determine its own destiny.
Funding from CREDO members will help the Black Voters Matter Fund develop a community-driven agenda for expanded voting rights and progress, plan and strategize on local issues, and provide SMS access and digital support to our partners in our 11 target states.
Friends of the Earth Action
Friends of the Earth Action believes that environmental protection and social justice are both part of the struggle for a healthy and just world. We fight for laws and lawmakers that echo that mission, and we help the public join in the battle.
A vote for Friends of the Earth Action will help the organization bolster progressive leaders who see the importance of intersectionality in progressive issues and who understand the relationship between social justice and environmental protection.
Working alongside local communities, Mercy Corps responds to the world’s toughest challenges, providing immediate life-saving support to meet the urgent needs of today as well as opportunities and community well-being for a stronger tomorrow.
CREDO’s partnership will support Mercy Corps in empowering people to survive through crisis and transform their communities for good. Your support positions us to respond quickly to urgent humanitarian needs and pivot to recovery building.
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 August 31.
