Keep the pressure on! Sign the petition and tell AOL to withdraw their support for ALEC.
Yahoo issued the following statement to Common Cause Wednesday night:
"We’ve decided to discontinue our membership in ALEC. We periodically review our membership in organizations and, at this time, we will no longer participate in the ALEC Task Force on Communications and Technology."
Google announced that it had left ALEC on Monday, after Chairman Eric Schmidt said the organization is “lying” about climate change and funding them was a mistake. Facebook soon announced that is was unlikely that it would renew its ALEC membership, and Yelp confirmed to Common Cause on Wednesday that it had left the organization months ago. Microsoft also left ALEC last month.
