We need to bring some good out of this terrible tragedy. We need to prevent MORE of these senseless killings. The organization called ALEC has actively fostered the spread of  "STAND YOUR GROUND" laws to many states. These are the very same laws that led to the Trayvon Martin murder in Florida....laws that “allow” vigilantes to be judge-jury-and-executioner...a nd get away with it! Some mainstream corporations have funded ALEC. BUT... as their funding has been publicized, they have withdrawn their support. Call or write or email the following two ALEC supporters: JOHNSON and JOHNSON, & STATE FARM insurance ....or.. visit www.pfaw.org/ditchALEC.  Please urge these two companies to their cut ties with ALEC. Tell them that they should not want their brands associated with the dangerous laws ALEC promotes -- including voter suppression, NRA-backed “stand your ground” laws, extreme racial profiling laws targeting immigrants, privatizing public education and protecting corporate polluters. If you do not want YOUR hard earned money to be used AGAINST your best interests, then tell State Farm & Johnson and Johnson, in no uncertain terms: DON’T FUND ALEC! ===>Stand Y-O-U-R ground!<=====
