Executive Director Kimberly Inez McGuire of Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity (URGE), which works in both Alabama and Georgia, says the idea of a boycott is complicated; she doesn’t “support boycotts that aren’t asked for or didn’t originate in the states.”

In Georgia…during session, there was some discussion of boycotts. But I support the self-determination of local communities. For us, the question is: “What are our young people doing? What are our partners saying?”
