CREDO Mobile Closes Progressive CREDO Action Campaign Without Explanation

Phillip Dampier January 7, 2020 Consumer News, Public Policy & Gov't 2 Comments

Several progressives were surprised to learn that CREDO Mobile (formerly Working Assets Wireless), a mobile virtual network operator that advocates for progressive causes, today closed down its CREDO Action activism arm and announced it was ceasing all further involvement in activism campaigns.

The CREDO Action website, which had recently been protesting against perceived Republican bias against the impeachment of President Donald Trump, was the advocacy arm of CREDO, a self-described social change organization that funds grassroots activism campaigns and progressive non-profit groups with revenue earned from CREDO branded credit cards, CREDO Mobile phone service and CREDO Energy. The group, originally launched in 1985 under the Working Assets Long Distance brand, had been integrally involved in many progressive campaigns, including preserving net neutrality, and has been a strong supporter of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

No explanation was given on the CREDO Action website, beyond thanking supporters and linking to a video reviewing the group’s major accomplishments in 2019. Many progressives were shocked by the surprising announcement, which came this afternoon without warning.

The decision is likely to cause the loss of jobs for at least a dozen of CREDO Action’s leadership and campaign staffers, who managed the group’s outreach and calls to action.

Well, thanks for the good news! But then again, I’m biased. Both my parents and my wife’s parents (barely) escaped from the clutches of radical leftist governments. Radical left politics scare the $#%! out of us. All that aside, mixing politics with your business is a risky endeavor.

I’m deeply saddened by this news. I give credo mobile plenty of my hard earned money and credo action was the main reason I decided to purchase the phone service. I would enjoy funding their work with my monthly installments, but now I feel I’m getting less for my money. Not great at all.
