As a show of our gratitude and continued support, we would like to take a moment to spotlight our newest members in the ERA Coalition.
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.
Following eight years as the leader of the effort to codify the Equal Rights Amendment into the U.S. Constitution, Carol is stepping aside from her position at the end of March 2022, while continuing to support our work as a member of our Board of Directors.
Who is Christopher Schroeder, and why does he matter to the ERA? What does he do in the Office of Legal Counsel?
Led by Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), this was the first full House Committee hearing on the ERA since the 1970s. The ERA Coalition hosted a press conference in advance of the event, featuring all 6 of the Chairwoman’s witnesses, as well as several members of Congress and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
We’re grateful to Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and the committee staff for putting this hearing together and keeping the momentum for the ERA moving forward. Learn a little more about the witnesses who are testifying during this hearing.
