The United States of ALEC

Join us for a screening and discussion of this film produced by Moyers and Company. It is a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of: ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. This event will reveal how a national consortium of politicians and corporations presents itself as a “nonpartisan public-private partnership.” Behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying aimed to increase profits at public expense without public knowledge.

Ethical Humanist Society member Sylvia Metzler will lead a post-film discussion.
