Move to Amend Reports on ALEC Exposed with Lisa Graves, Part 2

September 22, 2016

Move to Amend Reports connects you with activists and organizers working on the frontlines of the democracy movement, to bring you the lowdown on corporate rule, corporate personhood, and money as speech.

Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights.

Join us for the second half of our discussion with Lisa Graves on ALEC Exposed, where journalists and whistle blowers unveil ALEC bills and their corporate schemes to the public.
