What Happened When We Found Out Yelp Joined ALEC

We found out this week that Yelp, the popular online reviewing company, has joined up with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC is the organization behind bad legislation like "Stand Your Ground" laws and the anti-immigrant policies in Arizona. Yelp customers were horrified, but then responded in really creative ways. The fight isn't over though: join us and tell Yelp to cut all ties with ALEC.

You've probably heard of some of these bills...

Arizona's anti-immigrant SB 1070 law.

So people were kind of mad when they found out Yelp had joined up with ALEC.

"Why not tell Yelp how we feel about ALEC by reviewing it on Yelp?"

In 24 hours, over 2,400 people had reviewed the American Legislative Exchange Council on Yelp.

Because no matter your intent, when you give ALEC money, you are supporting their agenda.
