Join Center for Constitutional Rights Advocacy Program Manager, Dominic Renfrey, as he leads the discussion on: Fighting ALEC’s Control Of Lawmaking Is A Fight Against Racism. Dominic will be joined in discussion by Co-Director of Dream Defenders, Rachel Gilmer, ACLU New Mexico Field Organizer, Mary Ann Maestas, and Senior Staff Attorney at Palestine Legal, Radhika Sainath

 A visionary leadership has led to progressives taking decisive action against the years-long corporate, right-wing take over of government. In this effort there is no better focus than the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC). This session will equip participants with a deep understanding of the racist dimensions of ALEC’s legacy, and leave participants with practical ideas for how to leave Netroots with a plan to join the fight against ALEC.
