Google: Time to Dump ALEC

To be delivered to Larry Page, Google CEO

Petition Statement

The anti-environment, anti-education and anti-worker agenda of ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Council) is the antithesis of what Google claims to stand for.

Please end your support for ALEC and its extremist policies today!
There are currently 114,121 signatures. NEW goal - We need 125,000 signatures!

Petition Background

As a teacher in Arizona, I've witnessed ALEC's dangerous agenda firsthand. The group has repeatedly tried to dismantle our public schools by rerouting taxpayer funds toward private and for-profit institutions, attacking the reduced price school lunch program and attempting an end-run around teachers' unions.

On top of that, it's repeatedly pushed voter suppression efforts, discouraged policies that would expand alternative energy use and promoted the dangerous "Stand Your Ground" law.

Google has a great reputation and I couldn't be happier about the recent investments my school made to bring tools like Chrome and Google Docs to my students - but that also makes Google's involvement with ALEC even more disappointing.
