For nearly forty years, ALEC has provided model state law to more than 2,000 state legislators that increases big-business dominance in American public life and weakens our democracy. It’s time to build a legislative network that support working families and the middle class.
The American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange (ALICE) is a public library of progressive state and local legislation written by citizens – including professors, students, activists, researchers and others. It brings together both “exemplary” laws (those introduced or enacted somewhere and worthy of replication) as well as “model” laws (those with suggested general language, ready to be tailored to a particular jurisdiction). There’s also background research, talking points, and other aids for effective communication about them.
The Executive Director of ALICE, Joel Rogers, is a MacArthur Foundation “genius” winner; Newsweek identifies him as one of the 100 living Americans most likely to shape U.S. politics and culture in the 21st century. ALICE (American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange) is a groundbreaking new national project to provide an online public library of progressive model law and communications on hundreds of state and local issues.
Join Joel Rogers to discuss how to get involved with ALICE’s initiatives: Today (Tuesday, January 8, 2013) at 1:30 p.m. at the Seattle University School of Law, Room 110. Questions? Contact Professor Sara Rankin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
