Expose and Abolish the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)

      Indianapolis, IN

They meet in secret. They write our laws. They want us silent. The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a conservative organization designed to bring together state legislators and corporate representatives to craft corporate friendly legislation later introduced in state chambers by this Shadow Government. We feel that the least the public is owed in a democracy is transparency. That's why we are shining a light on ALEC. On its legislative members, its corporate sponsors, and its anti-social agenda.
