The Minnesota Anti-Apartheid Legislative Coalition (MAALC) campaigned in support of bills in the state legislature that would prohibit future investment of public money in banks or corporations doing business in South African and Namibia. MAALC was an umbrella organization that includes trade unionists, church representatives, community activists and students. It also includes legislators like Senator Allan Spear, Karen Clark and Randy Staten. The Twin Cities Committee for the Liberation of Southern Africa worked with MAALC.
