One year ago today, the Equal Rights Amendment should have been published as the 28th Amendment after meeting all requirements laid out in the U.S. Constitution. The ERA is already valid, despite not being published by the U.S. Archivist, and we will continue pursuing all avenues to push for full recognition.
As we continue our fight towards the equal constitutional protections of all on account of sex, many new organizations have followed suit and joined forces to become members alongside the 280+ members of the ERA Coalition. As a show of our gratitude and continued support, we would like to take a moment to spotlight our newest members at the start of this new year!
You already know that your purchase in the ERA Coalition store goes directly to support the work of the Coalition. You can get your Elect Equality, ERA Coalition, and WOMAN Corp gear all in one place and support your favorite organization! But now you can also find great gifts for your like-minded friends and family at two other online shops that are committed to supporting the work of equality: Pro-Choice Majority and Sewn for Good!
The ERA Coalition has been pushing for the Senate to schedule a vote on the Equal Rights Amendment time limit removal since it first introduced its resolution at the beginning of the 117th Congress. But we’re not the only ones calling for Senator Schumer to take action and schedule SJ Res 1/HJ Res 17 for a vote – many of our partners have joined in the chorus of supporters!
DECEMBER 8, 2022 is Latina Equal Pay Day. For every $1 a white man makes in the U.S., a Latina woman (on average) makes around 54 cents. This means that to make the same amount as their white male counterparts do in one calendar year, a Latina must work another 342 days. That’s almost two full years.
