Mailbag: Bold Progressives: Amazon drops ALEC
WE DID IT! Over 95,000 PCCC members petitioned and Amazon answered. CEO Jeff Bezos announced yesterday the company would drop its membership in ALEC. Victory!! We got word as we protested outside Amazon's annual shareholder meeting with over 500,000 petition signatures in hand from PCCC members and our allies. Amazon bowed to public pressure and will no longer fund ALEC's agenda of union-busting and voter-suppression -- but corporations like AT&T are still standing by ALEC.
