BIG NEWS: The right-wing ALEC organization issued a panicked response to our campaign to defund them.
After years of ALEC's coordinated attempt to ram voter-suppression and union-busting bills through states like Wisconsin, they accused progressives of running a "well-funded, expertly coordinated intimidation campaign...against corporate members of the organization."
This week, PCCC members aimed thousands of calls (and Tweets) at ALEC's funders -- and won. We're also preparing ads and events at corporate headquarters to pressure more of them.

Our friends at ColorOfChange made huge news last week by pressuring Coke to no longer fund ALEC. We joined the fight Monday, and after a day of massive pressure got the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to pledge no future ALEC funding!
McDonald's, Wendy's, Intuit, Kraft, and Pepsi have now made similar announcements -- and we're working with ColorOfChange to pressure AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, and others.
But let's be clear. This is not intimidation. This is regular people rising up to take back our democracy. ALEC's voter-suppression and union-busting agenda simply can't withstand public scrutiny.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
