In advance of Donald Trump’s speech today at the NRA convention, CREDO designed and submitted a series of geotargeted Snapchat filters drawing attention to the possibility that the NRA helped launder Russian money to support Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The filters can be viewed here:

It remains to be seen whether attendees at the NRA convention will use the Snapchat filters, and if so, whether or not they’ll understand the implication.

Earlier this year, after McClatchy reported that “the FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency,” more than 145,000 people signed CREDO’s petition urging the Senate Judiciary Committee to launch its own investigation.

The petition reads: “Conduct a full investigation into the allegations that the NRA helped funnel Russian money into the 2016 U.S. elections.” Predictably, the Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee has failed to act.

In the month after February’s tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida, CREDO engaged more than 400,000 in gun control activism. Additional details on CREDO’s long history of aggressive gun control activism can be found here.

CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
