WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

When China Labor Watch, a small but well-known and highly respected human rights organization that exposes abuses at electronics factories in China, was blocked from transferring money to its investigators in China, we knew we had to fight back. Western Union—after transferring $500,000 over 13 years for China Labor Watch—suddenly began requiring that the organization hand over the contracts with its human rights investigators and reveal the source of its funds, which would put China Labor Watch’s investigators at risk, possibly resulting in targeting by the factories they’re investigating or even arrest by the Chinese government. Thousands of CREDO Action members spoke out and after just seven days, Western Union lifted its ban and agreed to continue transferring funds for human rights investigations in China.
