Those of us who believe in equality and justice can find some hope in the jury’s decision to convict the three men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery. Arbery was targeted and victimized solely because of his race, and the jurors recognized that fact with their verdict.
Carol Jenkins: “The role the Office of Legal Counsel plays in this matter may affect the life of every woman in America.”
“We applaud Chairwoman Maloney’s tireless commitment to adding the Equal Rights Amendment and using her platform to draw attention to the urgency of writing equal rights into the very framework of our government. As politicians ramp up efforts to roll back women’s rights across the country, there’s never been a more crucial time to put people of all genders on equal footing in our nation’s legal system. The House of Representatives has passed the time limit removal twice already. It’s long past time for the Senate to follow suit and do the same. There is no time limit on equality.”
