Georgia religious leaders call for boycott of Home Depot over silence on voting laws
Prominent members of Georgia’s faith-based community have called for a boycott of Home Depot. Community leaders are hoping to enlist the help of major corporations in pressuring Georgia’s government to roll back its recently passed voting restrictions. The religious leaders report that corporations like Delta and Coca-Cola have taken steps to communicate with them about voting rights, while Home Depot appears unwilling to discuss the matter.
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.
