On the eve of the Senate Judiciary Committee vote to send Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the full Senate for a vote, we express our continued concern. This unseemly rush is an affront to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and all of us who respect her legacy of work in the interest of all Americans. A 6-3 Supreme Court endangers many of the hard-won victories for equality in the Court.
We believe that the case for the Equal Rights Amendment is made stronger than ever. We must amend our Constitution so that it protects its citizens from discrimination based on sex. We say to the US Senators voting on a Justice: What about a vote on SJ Res 6, removing the time limit on the ERA? The bill has been blocked in the Judiciary since February, when the House of Representatives voted to dissolve the time limit. We insist that the Judiciary take it up.
You can help by signing our petition to the Senate here, and by contacting your Senator here to ask them for a vote– if they want your vote.
Despite this, equality cannot be blocked. Join us on Monday for our next Town Hall: LGBTQIA+ and the ERA. You can register here.
