A growing number of companies and top executives are blasting a new election law in Georgia that some critics have assailed as a concerted effort to suppress minority voters.

More than 70 Black businesses leaders recently signed an open letter calling on companies to oppose similar bills in other states. Some businesses, like Atlanta-based Home Depot, have released statements affirming voting rights while not directly addressing the law.[7]
