Georgia has just passed an egregious voter suppression bill that's sole purpose is to prevent Black Georgians from voting.
Black voters turned out in large numbers and helped hand Joe Biden the White House, while also giving Georgia two new Democratic Senators. In Georgia, Biden’s winning numbers came from the four largest counties -- all in the Atlanta metro area with large Black populations.
The GOP understands that their success in elections depends on Democratic voters staying home. They particularly want Black voters to stay home.
Georgia is home to more FORTUNE 500 companies than any another state. Companies need to hear from us, their consumers. These companies should use their leverage from the revenue they generate for the state to urge changes in the voting law. They should also stop all contributions to any candidate that stands in the way of a person’s right to vote.
