Tell CEOs to Stay Out of Politics!
Corporate wokeness isn't going away. With today's ALG Minute, I'm Catherine Mortensen. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that over the weekend dozens of chief executives gathered on Zoom to plot what big businesses should do next about new voting laws under way in Texas and other states. According to several people who attended the virtual gathering. the former head of American Express and the CEO of Merck urged the leaders to call for greater voting access and asked them to sign a statement opposing what they view as discriminatory legislation on voting. A statement could come early this week that would build on one that 72 black executives signed last month opposing Georgia’s new voter integrity laws. Still, plenty of companies remain wary of wading into politically charged areas. As conservatives we can contact the consumer or stakeholder relations divisions of companies we do business with and urge them to stay out of politics. All we're asking is for them to be neutral.
