For over a year, Georgia courted Amazon to bring its second headquarters (known as HQ2) to the state. And for over a year, as CWA of Georgia fought tirelessly to pass a state-level Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), all we heard was Amazon would never do business with Georgia if a religious freedom bill were to be passed and signed into law.
This week, Amazon announced they would locate their new HQ2 in three states – two of which have RFRA laws! CWA of Georgia joined in a press release with other faith-based organizations in response to Amazon’s announcement. You can be assured that CWA of Georgia will continue to be on the front lines in 2019 working aggressively for the passage of a state-level RFRA.
