WASHINGTON, DC – March 31, 2023 – Green America, the nation’s leading green economy organization, is one of three nonprofits chosen to receive part of a $35,000 grant from CREDO for its work in the category of Climate Justice. Voting begins on April 1 and is open to the public. At the end of April, CREDO will tabulate all votes and distribute the donations accordingly.  

Green America will use the funding to support its mission of harnessing economic power – the strength of consumers, investors, and business leaders across the country – to create a more socially just and environmentally sustainable society.

Shireen Karimi, director of digital communications at Green America, said: “It’s a true honor to be participating in CREDO’s April donations program. With CREDO’s support, we will leverage consumer, business, and investor voices to persuade corporations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, transition our food system to regenerative practices, and protect socially responsible investing from right-wing attacks.”

Every month, CREDO members help choose how to distribute monthly donations to progressive nonprofit groups working on important issues including women’s rights, climate justice, economic justice, voting rights, peace and civil rights. The public can vote for one, two or all three of the organizations on the monthly donations ballot. 

Since 1985, CREDO has donated over $94 million to groups like Doctors without Borders, the Sunrise Movement, Amnesty International, and more. In recent years, Green America has been the recipient of over $113,000 in CREDO grants to support its work. Green America is grateful for CREDO’s past support and encourages its audience to help grow this figure by voting in the April contest up to once per day. 


Green America is the nation’s leading green economy organization. Founded in 1982, Green America provides the economic strategies, organizing power and practical tools for businesses and individuals to solve today’s social and environmental problems.
