A group of faith leaders in Georgia is urging individuals to boycott Home Depot, headquartered in Atlanta, in protest of the state’s newly-signed voting reform law. The home improvement company is one of Georgia’s largest employers.
The faith leaders took issue with Home Depot not weighing in on the political fight over the bill, as other companies including Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines have. One bishop said that the company “demonstrated an indifference, a lack of response to the call, not only from clergy, but a call from other groups to speak out in opposition to this legislation.” Home Depot emphasized the importance of "accessible, fair, and secure" elections.
Georgia-based Home Depot has stayed out of the voting law issue. Just stayed out of it. Focused on plywood, plumbing, and the like. Now, they're facing a possible boycott. From NYT: https://t.co/JxteWq2Brk pic.twitter.com/zHNIe6JIWG— Byron York (@ByronYork) April 20, 2021

If the loss of $100M due to the MLB All Star game wasn’t enough, now Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock’s lies are hurting Home Depot workers too.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) made it clear that he will, once again, not cave to pressure.

They went after baseball, and now they’re going after American jobs.
But I’m not backing down.
