Background info:

The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa is built to host conventions. Tucked away in Scottsdale, and less than one mile from Scottsdale Executive Airport, well-funded organizations can meet in a comfortable, secretive environment without setting foot outside the luxurious hotel grounds. This is where ALEC has chosen to bring together legislators and corporations to draft model legislation that exempts corporations from environmental and labor laws, pushes for Three Strikes and mandatory minimum sentencing, and targets, criminalizes and incarcerates communities of color, among other profit-driven laws (more info:alecexposed.org).

 

 

Call the Westin Kierland today to shame them for their part in allowing the sale of local and national legislation to the highest bidder.

#occupyALEC, #shutdownALEC and/or #ALECexposed

 

 

-Hold a Teach-In or other educational outreach event (an informative power point and other resources are available: https://azresistsalec.wordpress.com/more-info-on-alec/)

 

-Shut down the 1% ! Occupy an ALEC corporation near you…too many to choose from? Focus on the board of directors http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=ALEC_Boards_and_Task_Forces)

 

-Bring your message to an ALEC legislative member near you. What’s your local connection to ALEC? – In AZ we are focusing on the ongoing colonization and exploitation of Native land and ALEC’s connection to immigration and the private prison industry. http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=ALEC_Politicians

 

-Street theater exposing corruption – Remember Billionaires for Bush? – Form a “business suit bloc” and March! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAv8Mv9tzoA)

 

-Literally “Expose” ALEC – two letters per butt cheek…just sayin’… Or get a trench coat and hide ALEC’s sample bills inside…show people what’s under your coat…

 

Go to the website and see “Find ‘Find Model Bills’ here” http://www.alecexposed.org/wiki/ALEC_Exposed

 

-Twitter and Blog about ALEC on N30- get the word out far and wide!

 

-So many issues! Can’t decide? Focus on how private prisons affect your community.
