What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY My friends

Resolved Question:

What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY

My friends and I are considering starting a consumers union that could inform the public of shady practices by corporations and even organize boycotts if necessary, once we get a national following. Are there any legal ramifications with regard to starting this kind of organization or using the name "Union"? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. The use of the term union does not come with specific pre-requisites. Take Western Union for example. But be sure that you only disseminate truthful information and have a disclaimer that the content published is not necessarily representative of the opinion of the union but only those members offering such opinions/statements. Please let me know if you need additional guidance.

You didn't answer my first question. Are there any legal ramifications with regard to starting an organization of the sort I describe? One which may organize boycotts against corporations, etc.?
