A New America 2012
Becoming the Change you wish to see.
Boycotts Hitting Group Behind 'Stand Your Ground' LAWS Spreading across the USA! Two of America's best-known companies, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, have dropped their memberships in the American Legislative Exchange Council, a low-profile conservative organization behind the national proliferation of "Stand Your Ground" Gun Laws. http://www.npr.org/2012/04/05/150013705/boycotts-hitting-group-behind-stand-your-ground
It's nice to see big companies like Pepsi and Coca-Cola taking a stance on issues such as voter ID laws. This shows that the companies are socially engaged, and uphold their values and ethics even when it does not involve company profit. Hopefully these company's stance on this issue will encourage other companies to do the same thing. This reminds people who are wary of big businesses that big businesses can have values too. I hope PepsiCo and Coca-Cola decide to remain actively seized in the matter of voter ID laws and other social issues.
