ANNOUNCING: The 63 CREDO Climate Heroes

CREDO action
Meet these 63 inspiring activists organizing to take on the fossil fuel industry

Dear 5849376,

President Obama's rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline last week is a historic victory for the climate movement – one that would not have been possible without a massive, years-long campaign of grassroots activism and direct action.

Even as a decision on Keystone XL was delayed and delayed, a newly invigorated movement of everyday people was taking on other fossil fuel projects all over the country, and winning.

The lesson is clear: When hundreds of thousands of ordinary people take extraordinary action – including putting our bodies on the line and getting hauled off to jail – we can take on the fossil fuel industry and win, even when Beltway insiders tell us it's impossible.

CREDO is proud to have strengthened this movement through our donations program — which funds organizations on the leading edge of the climate movement — and through the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance, which trained hundreds of activists around the country to organize and lead civil disobedience and direct action.

It was in this same spirit that we launched CREDO Climate Heroes, a program of small grants designed to empower and fund local organizing to protest and confront the fossil fuel industry, and the decision-makers who are standing on the wrong side of history.

Today, we're excited to announce the CREDO Climate Heroes, 63 exceptional activists and small groups who are taking bold and confrontational action on climate.

Prepare to be inspired. Meet the Climate Heroes and read and share our Medium post about their activism.

Thank you for all that you do.
