China Labor Watch Receives $42,027 from CREDO for Labor Rights Investigation and Advocacy



NEW YORK – China Labor Watch (CLW) announced today that it received $42,027 from CREDO to support CLW’s tireless work to strengthen the respect of labor rights in China. CREDO has donated more than $78 million to organizations committed to social change since the company was founded in 1985.

CLW is grateful to once again receive support from CREDO. The funding will be directly utilized for CLW programs, including assistance to workers, CLW’s worker hotline, and the continued effort to increase transparency of Chinese factory labor conditions through rigorous investigation.

CLW was nominated by CREDO customers and chosen among hundreds of nonprofits to be featured as one of three groups eligible in December 2014 to receive funding for its work to strengthen the rights of Chinese workers. CREDO customers then helped decide how much money each nonprofit received by voting online or via phone or text. Learn more about CREDO’s donations program.

In addition to this donation, CREDO has assisted CLW in garnering attention for public campaigns. In August 2013, CREDO and its Action Members even successfully helped pressure Western Union to unblock CLW’s wire transfers to China to fund its work.

In 2013, CREDO donated $2,638,084 to groups that worked to stop the acceleration of climate change, protect women’s rights and civil liberties, among many other progressive causes. Some of the groups CREDO funded in 2013 include, Human Rights Watch, Social Security Works and Planned Parenthood.
