There will be many “distractions,” but we cannot afford to take our eyes off of November 3, 2020. When we wake up tomorrow morning, we will have exactly 37 days to prepare for the most consequential election in most of our lifetimes. The candidates we vote for must support gender and race equality.
This morning at 9:30A/ET Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, the first woman so honored. Civil Rights leader Rosa Parks, in 2005, lied in honor as a civilian.
Today we send our support to Breonna Taylor’s family and all of us who still grieve her tragic death. She deserves more than this, and we believe that when the Equal Rights Amendment is a part of our Constitution, she and all women and girls will have more rights and protections.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dedicated her life to women’s equality under the law. We are on the precipice of adopting the Equal Rights Amendment as the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Getting this done could not be more urgent. Today we ask you to think about how you want to participate, how you want to make equality happen. How will you honor the legacy of Justice Ginsburg? How will you protect all the women and girls in your life?
Join us for an inspiring and engaging conversation about the future of our country. We’ve been fighting for gender equality for too long. We’ve dedicated our work to the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We’re determined to see the Equal Rights Amendment adopted to the Constitution.
I trust you’re still celebrating Constitution Day, so are we! Making big plans for some big changes.
Come celebrate with us on the 30th; let’s talk about how we can do this together.
