The United States of Alec

Submitted By Isabelle McAndrews

The League of Women Voters of Fremont, Newark & Union City will host a DVD-viewing of ALEC on March 18, 2013 at the Fremont Congregational Church, Fremont. ALEC is the acronym for the American Legislative Exchange Council.

The free screening illustrates how companies drive state legislators to create laws that favor corporations. In the past, corporations have influenced state legislators to pass laws on raising credit card limits, privatizing schools and prisons, and modifying the Clean Water Act. ALEC's widespread influence is featured in the DVD which also covers what is being done to restrict ALEC from growing stronger.

A discussion of the film will proceed immediately after it is viewed.
