We stand with our Black Community in the fight for justice and equality

IHG joined several Georgia companies to support the passage of a Hate Crimes Bill in the state by signing a business coalition letter to lawmakers pressing them on this issue. A bill supported by the NAACP has now passed and will become law. While that is a great victory, we believe hate crime legislation is necessary for ALL 50 states. We will continue to support important causes in the fight for equality and implement policies within our company to support these principles. Advocacy is an integral part of how we can effect change, and this is only the start.

Join IHG in support of the federal Anti-Lynching Act. The bill, if passed, would make lynching a federal crime. Historically lynching was a crime in the United States that targeted and terrorized the Black community.

A Hate Crimes Bill supported by the NAACP passed the Georgia House and Senate on June 23, 2020. But the work is not over. There are three more states (Arkansas, South Carolina, and Wyoming) without a Hate Crimes Law. If you live in one of these states, reach out to your local elected officials and encourage them to pass comprehensive hate crime legislation.
