I recently sat down with Shelby Emmett, the Director of the Center to Protect Free Speech at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC, for short). Shelby, and the Center to Protect Free speech are based in Arlington, VA.
When it comes to changing policies, ALEC is an interesting organization to look at. It is the country’s largest voluntary membership organization of state lawmakers, it is a 501(c)3 policy think tank, and it has a 501(c)4 affiliate—ALEC Action. The Center falls squarely under the 501(c)3 part of the organization.
