The United States of ALEC

When: Sunday, October 13 2013 @ 02:00 PM - - 04:30PM
Where: San Josť Peace & Justice Center
48 South 7th St.
San Josť, CA 95112
Description: A Bill Moyers film...

ALEC, the innocent-sounding American Legislative Exchange Council, is behind ultra right-wing laws which have been passed by GOP state legislators all over America - laws to execute the GOP's war on women, "stand your ground," suppress voters' rights, bust the public-employee unions, and privatize schools, prisons, and other vital government services!

The film explores ALECís machine at work, detailing what one Wisconsin politician describes as ďa corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.Ē

Helen Grieco, Northern California organizer for Common Cause, will lead a discussion afterwards about issues raised by the film.

This event is sponsored by Green Party of Santa Clara County, Common Cause, and Dream Menders
