ALEC is an organization where corporations literally write legislation and give that to members of Congress to pass. They call it “model legislation” … but it’s just legalized corruption. This is happening thanks to organizations that are putting pressure on these corporations with the threat of boycott and the threat of bad PR.
I am happy to say that people on IACWE have sent hundreds of emails to Johnson and Johnson from various calls to action like HERE.

NJ.com has the story HERE:
“We have been in dialogue with ALEC for some time, and while we acknowledge ALEC’s recent decision to focus only on innovation and growth-supporting policies, we have decided to suspend our participation and membership,” Carol Goodrich, Johnson & Johnson’s director of coporate communication, said in a statement today.
Johnson & Johnson was one of ALEC’s top corporate members, with a seat on its private enterprise board. It is the first New Jersey-based company to sever ties with the group.
