The American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange, or ALICE, is a one-stop, web-based, public library of progressive state and local law on a wide range of policy issues. This online library is 100% free and completely open to the public. We curate the ALICE library to provide policy ideas, real-world examples, and supporting research documents to anyone interested in promoting progressive policies at the state or local level.

Our Mission

ALICE promotes state and local policies that advance economic and social opportunity, democratic transparency and accountability, and environmental sustainability. Our mission is to provide in one free, convenient, and easily accessible location the largest collection and widest variety of resources for progressives working to bring progressive change to the state and local levels. 

About the Library

ALICE is one-of-a-kind. While there are many organizations that support the same policies we support, several of which provide policy research and supporting documents, the ALICE library is the only place that collects, summarizes, and presents such a wide variety of progressive policy-related documents in one place. The ALICE library currently contains a searchable database of over 1800 model and exemplary laws and supporting documents in fourteen different policy areas.

Models = Generalizable framework laws that can serve as the basis for actual legislation

Exemplary = Actual laws that were enacted or introduced somewhere that represent good progressive local or state legislation

Supports = Research materials such as reports, policy memos, talking points, or other documents that support a specific progressive public policy recommendation or idea
