Notable members include Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM), Prison Fellowship, Right on Crime, Stop Child Predators, and the American Bail Coalition of which William Carmichael is the ALEC Criminal Justice private sector chair. In 2019, ALEC and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) joined forces on addressing the pervasiveness of burdensome fines and fees in the criminal justice system.
