This has become a national event for those who want our democracy back.
There are people coming from across the United States to have their voices heard, to participate in educational sessions, and to participate in peaceful protest against ALEC's subjugation of the democratic process.
My one request is - if one of you can go -
would you please carry a protest sign that says
"Legislators - GO HOME!"
If you can't make this - there are also very tentative plans being made for our own "educational meeting" to be held in conjunction with the ALEC New Orleans meeting August 3 - 6.
Writing about the travesty that is happening by ALEC to American Democracy is one part, putting "boots to the ground" is an additional piece that is necessary.
