Laura Flanders and Rashad Robinson on Fighting ALEC
For over 30 years, American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC) has been working for the advance of corporate and conservative political interests. Until most recently with the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, most people knew very little about the organization ALEC. The death of Trayvon and the controversial "Stand Your Ground" law is one particular issue that has been promoted by ALEC over the years. Many high-profile US companies that participated and contributed to ALEC have defected following the tragic death of Trayvon Martin.
