UPDATE: Joint Statement from the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Regarding Hate Crimes

Update: MAC has joined more than 60 companies across Georgia who signed a letter urging the General Assembly to support, approve and sign into law a comprehensive, specific and clear bill against hate crimes. We stand strong and united against targeted violence and bigotry.

------

“The passage of hate crimes legislation in 2019 by a bipartisan vote of the Georgia House of Representatives was an important step forward for our state.  Recent support from statewide leaders further demonstrates that momentum is growing for Georgia to join the 45 other states that already have these laws on the books. When the Georgia General Assembly reconvenes in June, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Georgia Chamber urge swift passage of hate crimes legislation that aligns our state’s laws with our values.”
