Help Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment
Thank you to all that wrote postcards and participated in the Women’s March. Here’s another request.
There are now bills in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House to remove the deadline in the ERA preamble. Note that although the ERA deadline does not appear to be constitutional, it could save time in court if Congress were to remove the deadline. Please contact your 2 Senators and your Representative to support these bills. Here are links to look up your Congress members and what you can write in a simple email - Senators and U.S. Representative. This will take less than 10 minutes and can help women have equal rights in the U.S. Constitution (like 85% of all countries).
Also, if you are from one of the 13 unratified states (AL,AR,AZ,FL,GA,LA,MS,MO,NC,OK,SC,UT,VA) please contact your state Senate and House representatives to support ERA.
There’s lots of information on www.democratsabroad.org/era. This is really a women’s issue, not a partisan issue – and supported by our “parent” organization AAUW. Feel free to contact Shari at ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with any questions and offers to help.
