CEOs plan new push on voting legislation
The CEOs and senior leaders of dozens of companies have met to discuss what to do about voting laws being considered in Texas and other states. Those involved in the meeting are planning on issuing a statement opposing the recent efforts in several states to pass legislation which critics claim will restrict access to the ballot. Several of the executives at the meeting expressed support for the proposed statement, arguing that it would ultimately be good for business. Others expressed concern that any statement would result in blowback against those companies who chose to weigh-in on the issue.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
