Fight for progressive change in Iowa

CREDO Mobilize

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." -- Margaret Mead

Dear 5849376,

This isn't like most of the emails we send you. We generally ask you to sign a petition, make a phone call or attend a protest. Those are all incredibly important things to do, and they've helped CREDO activists win countless victories over the years, from defending women's rights to fighting fracking to shutting down dirty coal plants.

Now we're trying something new: putting the power to fight the right and win progressive campaigns directly in your hands. We've just launched a new people-powered campaign platform called CREDO Mobilize, which lets CREDO activists start their own petitions to fight for progressive change.

Ready to get started? Click here to create your CREDO Mobilize petition today.

Start a petition!

CREDO activists across the country have already started using the platform to launch hundreds of campaigns to protect the environment, hold extremist Republicans accountable, fight back against the war on women and much, much more. They're making a difference by engaging thousands of fellow CREDO activists to build grassroots pressure on key decision makers like their mayors, governors, members of Congress and local companies to do the right thing – and it's working:

  • This spring, a California Republican state senator introduced legislation that would have brought gas chamber executions back to California's justice system. Ana Zamora, a CREDO activist in California, decided to step up and create a petition against the gas chamber legislation. After more than 8,000 people in California signed Ana's petition, the California Senate Committee Public Safety Committee backed down and rejected the bill. Since then, Ana has used the CREDO Mobilize toolset to stay in touch with her 8,000 petition signers and continue working against the death penalty.

  • Millions of workers currently lack a single paid sick day, forcing sick workers to choose between making customers and other workers sick or giving up money they need to feed their families. Fortunately, thanks to the efforts of people like CREDO activist Amy Seplin, who started a petition telling New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn to bring the Paid Sick Time Act to a vote before the council, thousands of workers in New York City will see paid sick days added to their benefits package in 2014. With over 1,300 signatures, Amy's petition helped to turn up the public pressure on Speaker Quinn, who ultimately reached a deal on the Paid Sick Time Act.

Now it's your turn. Is your city or state government considering bad legislation? Or is there a local company or elected official doing something wrong that needs to change? Click here to start a petition on CREDO Mobilize and fight for the change you want to see in your community.

Thanks for helping lead the people-powered movement for progressive change.

Becky Bond and Murshed Zaheed,
