ALEC Boycott!

ALEC Boycott!

Infinity @Daily Kos

Looking at the list of the funders of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) I am sickened. Thanks to the good work of Think Progress, we have that list. What I'm curious about is how many of us would boycott these funders AND their holdings?

Here is the list of funders:

Needless to say I was shocked when I saw this list. As most of you know, ALEC provides legislation to the right-wingnuts of the GOP, designed to tear down the progress that we as Democrats have made over the last 60 years or so. They also are working hard to damage Unions whenever possible, take away a woman's control over their body, and much much more. You can find more info about the nefarious legislation here: http://www.alecexposed.org/...

Now I'm disabled and on SSI, but have my own server space for some private websites. I am wondering how many of you would be willing to help me research what products and holdings these corporations have, so we can work together to set up a National Boycott of these supporters.

I know this can work, as I was there on the picket lines during the boycotts of various national grocery chains during the effort to create the UFW.

Ideas and suggestions for doing this are greatly appreciated, together we can fight back and hit these greedy corporations where it hurts!
