ERA Call to Action - Cake time
The Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced
in Congress in 1923 - 100 years ago!
To commemorate that, Democrats Abroad is joining women across the U.S.
holding birthday parties in March – many on March 22
the date in 1972 that Congress submitted the ERA to the states for ratification.
Despite that we’ve met all the constitutional requirements, the ERA has not been published.
The goal is to raise awareness that the ERA is still not officially in the US Constitution.
Equal Means Equal has created a "cookbook" of ideas and graphics for groups to leverage. Click here to access.
For more details on the ERA 100th birthday party, listen to Shari Temple’s appearance on the DA Blue Cafe podcast.
