In lieu of ongoing events in our country, we are going to address the systemic issues within our political system. It is our elected officials who are responsible for creating the current policies and if we are unhappy with the policies in place, it is our responsibility to make a change at the voting polls. We must educate ourselves on the political platforms and organizations supporting our current officials and candidates alike.
An example of an organization responsible, for policy support to elected officials, is the State Innovation Exchange (SiX). SiX partners with national and state partners to highlight issues like Black maternal health, equal pay, paid family and medical leave, student debt reform, as well as, other issues.
Another example is the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC has a long history of undermining the rights and safety of people of color and working families by producing model bills for state policy-makers related to environmental regulation, voter ID laws, tax law, education reform, as well as, gun laws and the criminal justice system.
Research other organizations responsible for pushing through legislation to our elected officials or use one of the examples provided. The organization must be publicly funded and not an organization, under the federal government, using tax dollars. Be sure to identify the legislation passed through Congress, enacted into law, and the impact on American citizens.
Your essay must:
Select an organization and summarize the history of the organization.
Research their political power and legislation they continue to support.
Identify the legislation passed through Congress, signed into law, and the impact on American citizens.
Follow these requirements when writing the short essay and remember that if you do not have first hand knowledge of the organization research unless a member, the information was obtained from outside sources and must be cited and entered into the bibliography:
