A previously planned national boycott of some Atlanta-based corporations is on hold for now.
The boycott, organized by Black faith leaders, was planned against companies including Home Depot, Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines in response to Georgia’s controversial new voting legislation.
On Thursday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, who presides over the Sixth Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, joined host Rose Scott to explain why he and other faith leaders are holding off on the boycott for now.
Jackson told Scott he and other religious leaders plan to meet several Georgia corporate leaders to encourage them to speak out to similar voting measures being considered in other states nationwide.
