(December 18, 2019) New York, NY — The filing of a lawsuit by Alabama’s Attorney-General to stop the Equal Rights Amendment is a shameful effort to keep women from gaining Constitutional equality. 94% of Americans support the ERA – 99% of millennials who all believe that it is time to end second class citizenship for women who were intentionally left out of the Constitution more than two hundred years ago.
As 2019 comes to a close, we cannot thank you enough for your support– both activist and financial–for our work. From the staff, our Board of Directors and Advisory Council, know that you are very much appreciated.
Please join us in an urgent action: sign our petition to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer to hold a floor vote on HJ Res 79, the bill to remove the time limit on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
It was an amazing year for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and we have so much to look forward to in 2020. The time for the ERA is now, and with your support we are certain it will get done.
Our sincerest congratulations to long-time ERA champion Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) for winning the powerful position of Chair of the Oversight Committee in the House of Representatives. She takes over from the late Elijah Cummings, who died last month. She becomes the first woman Chair of the Committee. Cheers!
