CREDO calls on Texas lawmakers to stop anti-LGBTQ efforts
Hate has never had a home at CREDO — and it never will.
We have been especially appalled at the recent attempt to criminalize a parent for helping their transgender child access medically necessary, age-appropriate healthcare in the state of Texas.
That’s why we recently joined the Human Rights Campaign and dozens of businesses to publish a full-page ad in the Dallas Morning News earlier this month calling on our public leaders — in Texas and across the country — to abandon these shameful efforts to write discrimination into law and policy.
We know that our customers choose CREDO because we share their values — for climate justice, civil rights, economic justice — and especially equality for the LGBTQ community, our employees and allies.
CREDO has a long record of standing up for the LGBTQ community that dates back more than 35 years. Since our founding in 1985, we have donated more than $15 million to groups like the National LGBTQ Task Force, the Transgender Law Center, the ACLU, Freedom For All Americans and dozens of other groups fighting for equality and civil rights.
To all our members — especially those in Texas and other states where trans, queer and non-binary people and other groups are marginalized and targeted for discrimination — always know that CREDO and our employees have your back. We will continue supporting and funding our allies who are fighting on the frontlines everyday to create a world where everyone is free to be who they are.
