Yum! Brands withdrawals from ALEC

1 post / 0 new

Even after the American Legislative Exchange Council agreed to dismantle its non-economic taskforces responsible for writing legislation like Voter ID laws and Shoot First laws – the exodus of corporate members continues. Today – Yum! Brands, which owns Pizza hut, KFC, and Taco Bell became the twelfth company or organization to drop its membership with ALEC.

This particular withdrawal is significant since Yum! Brands co-chaired ALEC’s Labor and Business Regulation Subcommittee, which has pushed legislation to repeal labor protections for workers. That’s twelve members of ALEC down – let’s hope more decide to drop out soon.

Our planet's lungs are dying...

Trees are like our planet’s lungs. Every second of every day, they’re absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and converting it into energy.

In fact, according to a study by researchers at NASA, each year, tropical rainforests absorb a staggering 1.4 billion metric tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.
