Parsons, one of the first Black CEOs of a Fortune 500 company, is one of 72 Black business leaders who have signed a letter urging American companies to publicly oppose the new law.   The new voting law, known formally as SB 202 or the Election Integrity Act of 2021, adopts stricter voter ID laws for absentee ballots, and says volunteers shouldn't hand out water and snacks to voters waiting in line, to stop "ballot selfies.
