ALEC and Common Cause. The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a 501(c)(3) American organization composed of state legislators, businesses and foundations which produces model policies for state legislatures and promotes free markets, limited government, and federalism at the state level.

Common Cause is an American nonpartisan, not-for-profit liberal advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C.[1] It was founded in 1970 by Republican John W. Gardner, the former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in the administration of President Lyndon Johnson. The group's mission is to serve as a citizens' lobby to establish greater transparency and accountability in U.S. political institutions.[2]

The League is inviting speakers from both organizations to discuss their impact on government.
