APRIL 12, 2012 / BY CAMPAIGN STAFF Mars Inc. has ended membership in ALEC

 

ColorOfChange applauds Mars Inc.'s decision to end it's membership with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

Today, Mars -- makers of Snickers, M&M's and MilkyWay amoung other products -- becomes the seventh company to sever ties with the right-wing group. ColorOfChange began communicating with Mars in January. Today's announcement confirms that when corporations become educated about ALEC's role in pushing voter suppression and Kill at Will bills, they realize that association with ALEC is bad for business.
