Today’s Action: Protect Georgia’s Black voters – no corporate sponsorship of voter suppression!

Now that President Biden’s American Rescue Plan has become law with zero GOP votes, despite the support of a majority of Republican voters, Republicans see one path to maintaining electoral relevance: voter suppression.

It’s a tired, anti-democratic, racist strategy that has been thoroughly embraced by Republicans at the state level, and it’s time for their corporate backers, who claim to love democracy and support Black rights, to put a stop to it.

Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, UPS, and AFLAC all have made significant financial contributions to the GOP Georgia lawmakers who are sponsoring these bills, and if they pull their support, the bills will die

The incredible Black activists who organized their communities for the November election need nationwide support in keeping Georgia’s Black votes protected – it’s time to jump back into text banking!

Contact these corporations using Black Voters Matter’s script and demand they divest from racist, antidemocratic legislators! 

Two egregious bills in particular are expected to pass (HB 531 and SB 241). Combined, these two would require photo IDs for absentee ballots – or eliminate no-excuse absentee voting entirely – cut weekend voting hours, and reduce ballot drop boxes. In other words, the GOP is strategically cutting all of the legal and fraud-free routes Black voters used to defeat Trump and flip the Senate.

Corporations in Georgia have a choice: stay silent and allow the return of Jim Crow era policies…or actually use their financial influence to protect Georgia’s voters.

Let’s ensure they choose wisely.

Use the Black Voters Matter script to tell Georgia’s biggest corporations to stand AGAINST voter suppression!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding Ted Cruz to resign, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
