The ERA Coalition/FFWE was joined for the discussion on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day by Coalition partners working in the movement, along with several United States Representatives who have been champions on the issues of the ERA and Black women’s equity.
The ERA Coalition/Fund for Women’s Equality has a small but mighty team of staff doing the behind-the-scenes work. But we’re lucky enough to also have the support of an experienced, enthusiastic Board of Directors, Advisory Council, and Legal Task Force. Learn more about our team!
As a show of our gratitude and continued support, we would like to take a moment to spotlight our newest coalition members so far this summer, and highlight a few of our new partners.

A delegation of ERA Minnesota Silent Sentinels are in Washington, D.C. as we speak. We’ll join compatriots around the country to hold daily vigil in front of the DOJ to tell AG Garland to rescind the ERA Barr memo.
