NC NAACP threatens to sue and urges Apple and Amazon to stay away from NC over ‘voter ID’ bill and Charter school law
An advocacy group wants Apple and Amazon to drop the Raleigh-Durham area from consideration for new campuses if the state Legislature continues with its move to write a voter identification requirement into the state constitution.
The Color of Change, which calls itself the largest online racial justice organization, said it has run an ad in San Jose and Seattle newspapers, telling the companies to “reject racism.”
North Carolina is on the list of 20 sites being considered for Seattle-based Amazon’s second headquarters. Apple, based outside of San Jose, California, is considering a site in Research Triangle Park for one of its campus.
