The American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, is convening in Austin from Aug. 14-16 at the J.W. Marriott for their 46th annual meeting.

We must show them THEY ARE NOT WELCOME! We must TAKE BACK OUR STATE!

ALEC is just another way for corporate interests to control our government.
❌ They take power away from everyday Texans and put it into the hands of the wealthy few.
❌ They’re behind bad legislation like “Stand Your Ground” gun legislation and Voter ID.
❌ They use corporate contributions to sell prepackaged conservative bills that hurt our communities.
❌ They are responsible for getting the "critical infrastructure bill" that makes peaceful protests at pipelines a felony passed in Texas and many other states.

Let’s take back our power! Let's take back our state! Join us for our Unwelcome Reception and Rally! 💪
