ColorOfChange Targets Corporations Over Voting Laws

Post By RelatedRelated Post

An online advocacy group is urging corporations that market to African-Americans to stop giving money to a conservative organization working for stricter voting laws.

The group, ColorofChange, is targeting companies that support the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, a nonprofit that has helped states pass photo ID laws, which are criticized by minority and civil rights groups. Its members include legislators and corporations, who pay higher fees to join.

Executive director Rashad Robinson is not yet naming the companies, but said Wednesday his group has already asked them once to drop their financial support of ALEC. ColorofChange also is asking its more than 800,000 individual members to sign a letter asking ALEC’s corporate members, which include Coca Cola and Wal-Mart among others, to end their support for the group.

The intent, Robinson said, is to “place their brand next to these discriminatory voter ID laws and their impact.”

“The corporations behind this can’t come to us for our dollars 364 days of the week and disenfranchise us on the 365th,” Robinson said.

  1. That’s not even straddling the fence, that is just a matter of giving you a pound while holding a knife round the back to juke you just as the dap hug is in place. Call em’ all out and sooner than immediately please! I’m sure we’ll all be grateful to sink em’ financially. That is exactly what we need to do those kinds of businesses, sink em’…no mercy, no quarter. War against our rights means an end to your economic existence (at least on our part).
