On Friday, April 29, a delegation of five SSUers and friends joined over two hundred people in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio at a protest against ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, a powerful right-wing think tank. ALEC has pushed anti-union laws in the Midwest, the infamous anti-immigrant S.B. 1070 in Arizona, the Voter ID act that makes it more difficult for students and others to register to vote, and a host of other horrible pieces of legislation that prioritize profit over people. ALEC has many powerful corporate members, including private prison companies that profit from draconian immigration policies.
