ERA Coalition Statement Ahead of President Biden’s State of the Union Address

As President Biden prepares to deliver his State of the Union address, we urge him to acknowledge that the Equal Rights Amendment has fulfilled all requirements to be added to the Constitution and clearly and forcefully call on the U.S. Archivist to publish it, as their statutory duty requires. We also urge President Biden to call on Congress to affirm the validity of the ERA and remove the time limit to remove any doubt that it’s valid and enforceable today.

A hope for the State of the Union address

It is our hope that Biden includes the ERA as the means to solving women’s inequality in  tonight’s State of the Union Address. We hope that in Wednesday’s analysis of his speech, we will write about his use of the Equal Rights Amendment in women’s equality, rather than when he should have used it.
