Georgia voting rights activists pressure big corporations to oppose GOP-backed ballot restrictions
Voting rights activists in Georgia have put pressure on some of the state’s largest corporations—including Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, Home Depot, and UPS—to condemn recently passed bills which restrict access to the ballot box and stop donating to Republican lawmakers who support them. These efforts have produced mixed results thus far, with corporations issuing general statements in support of fair and secure elections, without specifically criticizing Republican-passed election bills.
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.
