Tell Amazon, Fedex, UPS & VISA: Stop funding ALEC

    1. Petition by

      Standing on the Side of Love

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has promoted the “stand your ground” laws highlighted in the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida; Arizona-style, anti-immigrant legislation; racially-discriminatory voter ID laws; and anti-environmental legislation.

Amazon, Fedex, UPS and VISA are all corporate members of ALEC, and through their contributions are supporting legislation that is detrimental to our communities.  

As consumers, shareholders, and concerned individuals we are asking the CEOs of Amazon, FedEx, UPS and VISA to end their membership and stop funding ALEC.

Sign the petition and join us in standing up for what is right.

      As a former UPSers I know for a fact that involvement with ALEC violates UPS code of ethics.

      I am opposed to the agenda of ALEC and believe it is necessary for all citizens to speak out and stop ALEC now.

      The "Stand Your Ground" law is an open invitation for violence, especially in a society where guns are so easily accessible.

      Dear Corporate Directors: Your support of ALEC and its profoundly un-American political agenda is a huge disappointment to me. I urge you to consider withdrawing your funding of this troubling group and use your money and influence for positive, democratic and productive causes that our society needs.

      Legislators are elected to represent their constituents, and uphold the Constitution, NOT to serve the interests of a handful of greedy selfish people who couldn't care less about our Constitution, let alone human rights.
