100 CEOs meet to discuss opposing voter ID laws

"The president has also repeated the lie that "this is Jim Crow in the 21st century." Democrats have clearly realized this is a potential fundraising tactic regardless of the impact on voter confidence. It is no small wonder how a law, which election experts agree expands voting access to all Georgians, could be compared to the vast historical effort to disenfranchise and oppress Black Americans."

More than 100 CEOs and senior leaders on Saturday met on a Zoom call to map out how businesses should respond to new voting restrictions that are set to be enacted in Texas and other states across the country.

The executives discussed ways to oppose the voting laws, which were first enacted in Georgia.

This included halting donations to politicians who support the bills and postponing investments in US states that pass the legislation, four people who were on the call told the Washington Post on Sunday, including one of the organizers, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a Yale management professor.

In the wake of the controversy surrounding Georgia's new voting law, SB 202, with Major League Baseball pulling the 2021 All-Star Game from the state and companies like Coca-Cola and Delta pushing back against restrictive voting provisions, this effort would represent a significant development in the corporate sector weighing in on voting rights.
