Time is short, and the situation is urgent. So, I’ll get right to the point.
During the Super Bowl, Coca-Cola spent millions to tell the world to oppose hate and #makeithappy.
Now, it’s time for Coca-Cola to #MakeGaHappy by taking a stand against hate in their own backyard.
Last year, when Coca-Cola and other Georgia corporations took a strong, public stand against legislation that “would allow a business to refuse service to an individual based on LGBT, or other status,” the bill died in committee.
But, this year, as Sen. McKoon’s bill has moved forward, Coca-Cola has been silent.
A vote could happen at any moment. And unless businesses like Coca-Cola speak out now, Sen. Josh McKoon’s “okay to hate” bill could become law.
Here’s how you can take action right now:
Tell Coke to #MakeGaHappy by Tweeting or making this your Facebook status:
Companies like Coca-Cola listen to their customers – YOU.
That’s why your action is needed now to stop excuses for discrimination from becoming law in Georgia.
Atlanta politicians have ignored hundreds of faith leaders, former Attorney General Michael Bowers, two sitting district attorneys, dozens of legal scholars and a coalition of civil rights groups, who have all warned about the dangers of this unnecessary bill.
But they won’t ignore Georgia’ business community.
It’s up to you to tell Georgia’s businesses that their customers won’t tolerate hate.
That’s why I don’t want you to spend another minute reading email.
Tell Coca-Cola to take a stand against discrimination.
Together, we can make all the difference.
