Today, in response to the CEOs of Coca-Cola and Delta publicly proclaiming opposition to SB 202, Republicans’ voting restriction bill signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp last week, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:
“As major Georgia businesses and employers, it is imperative that companies like Coca-Cola and Delta speak out against any policy that infringes on the rights of citizens in this state. The CEOs of these two companies are absolutely correct in their assertions that SB 202 is unacceptable and would take voting rights in Georgia backwards. We are glad that they have publicly committed today to being vocal advocates in the ongoing fight to secure and strengthen voting rights — and we know Georgians will hold them accountable.
“Thankfully, Democrats already have two strong voting rights bills ready for debate: HR 1, the For the People Act, and HR 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. We look forward to engaging with Georgia companies like Coca-Cola and Delta as real partners on these critical issues, which affect the civil rights of Georgians and all Americans.”
