    FYI: we will emulate aspects of these organizations.


    Sure, here are five organizations that are working to counter the policies and proposals of ALEC:

    1. Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) – CMD is a watchdog group that tracks ALEC’s activities and exposes their corporate ties. They also provide information for journalists and activists to counter ALEC’s influence.

    2. Campaign Legal Center – The Campaign Legal Center is a nonpartisan organization that works to promote fair elections and government ethics. They have been active in exposing ALEC’s role in crafting voter suppression laws and advocating for campaign finance reform.

    3. Free Press – Free Press is a nonprofit organization that works to promote a free and open internet and combat media consolidation. They have been vocal opponents of ALEC’s efforts to restrict municipal broadband and net neutrality.

    4. Economic Policy Institute (EPI) – The EPI is a think tank that focuses on economic policy research and analysis. They have produced research that challenges ALEC’s claims about the economic benefits of their policies, particularly in the areas of tax cuts and privatization.

    5. Public Citizen – Public Citizen is a nonprofit organization that advocates for consumer rights and government transparency. They have been active in opposing ALEC’s efforts to weaken environmental protections and promote corporate interests over public health and safety.

    These organizations are just a few examples of the groups working to counter the harmful policies and proposals put forth by ALEC. There are many others out there, and I encourage everyone to get involved in the fight for a more just and equitable society.

    Another hurdle in the way of digital equity: “Two former Obama-era solicitors general are arguing the FCC should not restore network neutrality rules eliminated under Republican chair Ajit Pai.

    In a new paper co-written by Donald B. Verrilli Jr. and Ian Heath Gershengorn, the veteran legal minds get together to advise that the Federal Communications Commission does not have the authority to reclassify broadband access as a telecommunications service subject to common carrier regulations, specifically nondiscriminatory access regs and that the commission needs to let Congress weigh in.”
