The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is meeting in San Francisco from July 19th through 23rd. A Press Conference will be held in protest of ALEC on Thursday, July 20th, at 2 pm at the Marriott Hotel at 55 Fourth St., in downtown SF. ALEC is one of the nation's most powerful and least known corporate lobbies, and it is funded primarily by large corporations, industry groups, and conservative foundations. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be at a breakfast on Friday morning to discuss "immigration reform."
