Call Johnson & Johnson: End your support of ALEC.

Dear Friend,

You and more than 150,000 CREDO activists, along with more than 90,000 ColorOfChange members, have called on corporations to stop supporting the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) because of its role in voter suppression.

And since we started our campaign, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Kraft Foods, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and McDonalds have all ended their relationships with ALEC — a major step forward in our campaign.

But many major corporations are still funding ALEC. Johnson & Johnson is one of them.

Our friends at Color of Change contacted Johnson & Johnson to make sure it understood that through its membership in ALEC, it is supporting racially-discriminatory voter ID laws that have the potential to disenfranchise over 5 million people in the upcoming elections.

But despite numerous emails and telephone calls, Johnson & Johnson management will not respond. It appears that Johnson & Johnson executives believe that if they ignore us we'll simply go away.

Now, we need to call Johnson & Johnson's headquarters and make sure they get the message loud and clear that Americans want them to drop their support of ALEC.

Call Johnson & Johnson and tell the corporation to stop supporting ALEC and voter suppression. Click here for a sample script and the number to call.

Johnson & Johnson is a well-known household brand. By associating the company with ALEC, it lends legitimacy to a radical organization that is undermining voting rights and our democracy.

Johnson & Johnson has made a substantial amount of money from consumers who are disenfranchised by voter ID laws — people of color, seniors, and young people.

Supporters of discriminatory voter ID laws claim they want to reduce voter fraud (individuals voting illegally, or voting twice). But such fraud almost never actually occurs, and never in amounts large enough to affect the result of elections. What is clear is that voter ID laws prevent large numbers of eligible voters from casting a ballot, and could disenfranchise up to 5 million people.

ALEC's voter ID laws are undemocratic, unjust and part of a longstanding right wing agenda to weaken the voting blocs that historically oppose Republican candidates. We have to expose the major companies like Johnson & Johnson that are helping ALEC suppress the votes of millions of Americans before it's too late.

Johnson & Johnson's financial support of ALEC must end. Please join us in calling on Johnson & Johnson to stop supporting ALEC's rightwing agenda.

Thank you for standing up to corporate funded attempts at voter suppression..

Becky Bond, Political Director
CREDO Action from Working Assets

P.S. Earlier this week, in response to the public outrage at their extremist agenda, ALEC announced it will shut down its 'Public Safety and Elections task force,' and claimed that ALEC would be focused on economic issues from now on. We believe that this is nothing more than a PR stunt that does nothing for the millions of Americans who could lose their right to vote due to ALEC's advocacy.
