On Tuesday, September 1st we will be in court representing our Arizona partners, Black Lives Matter (BLM) Phoenix Metro, Mijente Support Committee, Puente Human Rights Movement, and the Arizona Palestine Solidarity Alliance (APSA).
The case is about our fight to stop ALEC lawmakers circumventing democratic legislatures and writing laws with corporate executives in private hotel suites. Join us remotely in court at 4:30pm ET to support our continued fight against ALEC’s racist, corporate control of our democracy. Please register here.
The hearing in court follows our filing on December 4, 2019 in Phoenix against 26 Arizona lawmakers that attended ALEC’s annual meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. The day before we filed the lawsuit we also released our report “ALEC Attacks,” documenting ALEC’s long legacy of developing laws on behalf of the organization’s corporate fee-paying members that have targeted people of color. These notorious laws include Voter ID, Stand Your Ground, Critical Infrastructure, and anti-BDS laws. For further information about the case, see our case page.
After the court argument, join us at 6:30pm ET via Zoom to listen in on the press conference and hear from our attorneys and local Arizona partners.
