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.
I would hope that your company does not want to support voter suppression, racism, environmental degradation, or breaking apart families, nor have your products or services associated with discrimination, large-scale voter disenfranchisement, and policies that directly harm my community. I urge you to immediately stop funding ALEC and issue a public statement making it clear that your company will no longer support an organization that supports legislation that is harming your customers’ communities.
