General Motors And Walgreens’ Leave ALEC

Call it an exodus. Two more companies, General Motors and Walgreens’, are the latest to withdraw from the conservative legislation-crafting American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), bringing the total up to 31 organizations that have left the group in just four months. In April, progressive advocates urged companies to leave ALEC because of its ties to voter suppression efforts around the country. Progressive organizing group ColorOfChange.org continues to lobby other ALEC stakeholders to leave the group.
