For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 1, 2018 – Alliance for Justice Action Campaign is excited to announce that it has been chosen by CREDO Mobile to be an August grant recipient. This selection recognizes AFJAC’s work and leadership as a progressive nonprofit, and we are honored to have this opportunity. Each month, CREDO Mobile dedicates a portion of their revenue—roughly $150,000—and holds an online vote to divide the funds among three progressive nonprofits. The amount that AFJAC receives will depend on how many votes the organization gets.

Grant funds from CREDO will be used to help AFJAC lead the fight against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s ultraconservative record of hostility to civil rights, women’s rights, workers’ rights, immigrants’ rights and environmental protection is a clear threat to millions of people in the United States. AFJAC is mobilizing communities; activating our networks of influential leaders, progressive constituencies, and broad base of supporters; and taking to the digital airwaves to drive calls to senators, urging them to oppose Kavanaugh.

Online voting takes place here starting today, August 1, and continuing through August 31.
