Atlanta, Georgia – Local religious leaders of Atlanta are delaying their planned boycott of Georgia based corporations for now. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported that a coalition of religious leaders are holding off on the boycott until at least a planned virtual meeting with some of Georgia’s biggest fortunes.
The boycott was called after corporations such as Delta, Home Depot, and Coca-Cola did not speak up in favor of Georgia residents when the state passed the controversial SB 202 (Election Integrity Act of 2021). Major League Baseball has decided to protest the new law by moving the All-Star game from the Atlanta Braves home stadium in Cobb County to Denver, Colorado.
In late March, a group of protestors met in front of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce to protest Coca-Cola and encourage residents to pour out the Coca-Cola now.
