Tell ALEC Companies: Stop Funding Bigotry

ALEC member corporations


Major companies are funding bigotry -- and we must call them out.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) -- a secretive corporate lobbying group that pushes harmful legislation through state houses -- has reached a new low. They’ve already threatened our democracy, stripping power from the people behind closed doors and giving more influence to wealthy donors and big corporations.

Now they’re promoting David Horowitz, who the Southern Poverty Law Center called “one of America's most dangerous hatemongers" and gave him a platform to spread his racist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and sexist rhetoric. In his keynote speech last month at ALEC’s annual conference, Horowitz made extremely hateful comments about women, LGBTQ people, people of color, and the Black Lives Matter movement.

ALEC, who did nothing to stop Horowitz’s tirade, is actively working to call a dangerous Article V convention -- and Horowitz’s speech was a preview of the hateful agenda the right wing would attempt to write directly into our Constitution if they succeed.

Despite all this, major companies like Anheuser-Busch, UPS, AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon continue to support ALEC. By funding ALEC, they are complicit in promoting Horowitz’s bigotry, undermining our democracy, and putting our Constitution at risk.

We must hold corporations accountable for the dangerous groups and tactics they secretly fund. Over the last few years, we have been able to push over 100 major companies to cut ties with ALEC due to its extreme agenda and anti-democratic operations. ALEC’s promotion of Horowitz’s hateful rhetoric is another reason why more companies should follow suit.

Major companies like UPS, AT&T, Comcast need to hear directly from you -- stop helping ALEC fuel hate. Sign our petition now!

ALEC gave David Horowitz, known as "one of America's most dangerous hatemongers," a platform to spread bigotry. Companies like UPS, AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, and Anheuser-Busch must stop funding ALEC and its enabling of hate speech.
