Forty years of ALEC is nothing to celebrate. Can we count on you to be there and push back?When greedy corporations are allowed to make the rules, our community suffers. Good full time jobs are outsourced or replaced by part time jobs at low wages while CEOs and corporations dodge their fair share of taxes. That’s why students, workers, faith leaders, retirees, environmentalists and community activists are speaking up about ALEC and shady corporate front groups like them. See you there.
