Color of Change gives a press release:
Today, employees in Yum! Brands’ corporate headquarters have told our members and ColorOfChange staff that the company has in fact dropped ALEC. In doing so, the operator of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell has restored our belief that it stands in favor of crafting legislation in view of the public, rather than behind closed doors.
“We sent CEO David Novak’s office a letter last year expressing our concerns about ALEC’s role in voter suppression, and in early February received a noncommittal response from James Fripp, the company’s Senior Director of Global Diversity & Inclusion. That letter said that Yum! was not part of ALEC’s Private Enterprise Board, but did not communicate that the company had severed ties completely with the conservative policy group.
The companies that have already publicly left ALEC under pressure from Color of Change and Common Cause are:
Kraft, Pepsi,Coca-Cola, Intuit, the Gates Foundation, McDonalds, Wendy’s, Arizona Public Service, Mars, Inc., American Traffic Solutions, Reed Elsevier, Blue-Cross Blue Shield and Yum Brands (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut).
