Target: ALEC BILL GATES DUMPS ALEC THIS WEEK!!



Dump ALEC
DuPage County,
LET'S KEEP THE PRESSURE ON. ONE GATES DOWN!!
Have you heard about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)?
They spearheaded union-busting laws in states like Wisconsin, voter-disenfranchisement laws in states like Maine, and Florida's "Shoot First" law that let Trayvon Martin's murderer go free.
This week, progressive activists scored a major victory by pressuring Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Kraft to stop funding ALEC!
Can you continue the momentum by signing our petition telling ALEC's other funders -- including AT&T and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation -- to stop funding this right-wing group? Click here.
After Coke's announcement, civil rights group ColorOfChange said, "The clear and simple message was that you can't come for black folks' money by day and try to take away our vote by night." Amen.
Our friends at ColorOfChange led this week's activism and were assisted by Credo, a progressive phone company which engages in activism.
If we can get other dominos to fall, we can dramatically reduce ALEC's ability to do evil. 
Click here to see a list of ALEC's funders -- and sign our petition telling them to stop funding this right-wing group immediately. Click here.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
