Does Citibank really support Voting Rights?
Citibank is owned by Citigroup
Citigroup is one of the several corporations that pledged, after the events of January 6th 2021, to suspend all PAC donations and have not donated directly or indirectly to the 147 Republican objectors. It is also one of the few companies that has been honoring its pledge so far. However, it was reported that Citigroup participated on April 6th in a "policy working group" on "election integrity" with the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), a party organization that is actively supporting new voter suppression bill. Citi declined to comment on their involvement, leaving us with some doubts on their overall position on this issue.

Other corporations said they were suspending all PAC activity and others promised to reevaluate their giving criteria in light of the violence.
