Black Execs Call on Co.’s to Oppose Voter Suppression; Delta & Coca-Cola CEOs Finally Condemn GA Law

HeadlineApr 01, 2021

Over 70 Black executives signed an open letter calling on companies to speak out against dozens of voter suppression bills like the one passed in Georgia last week. Published as a full-page ad in The New York Times, the business leaders write, “When it comes to protecting the rights of all Americans to vote, there can be no middle ground.”

President Biden says he would strongly support Major League Baseball players if they decide to move the upcoming All-Star Game from Atlanta to protest Georgia’s new voter suppression laws. Meanwhile, the CEOs for Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola finally came out in opposition to Georgia’s clampdown on voting rights, nearly a week after the legislation was signed and amid mounting public scrutiny and threats to boycott the companies over their inaction.
