ERA CONTACT U.S. REPRESENTATIVES CAMPAIGN

Action

Contact your U.S. Representative to support H.J. Res 17 - a joint resolution removing the deadline for the ratification of the equal rights amendment.  

Guidelines

Click here to find out if your Representative is already a Co-Sponsor.

To find their contact information, click here.

If your representative is not a Co-Sponsor, then write or call to ask them to become one and why ERA is important. If your representative is already a Co-Sponsor, then write or call to thank them.

Some good guidelines along with contact information for your Representatives can be found here.

We recommend sending a postcard from your country with something like for those not yet a co-sponsor:

I believe women should have equal rights in our Constitution.  I hope you do as well.   Please support ERA bill HJR17.  

Sincerely,

<your signature>

<your state> Voter living in <your country>

For those that are a co-sponsor:

I believe women should have equal rights in our Constitution.  Thank you for co-sponsoring ERA bill HJR17.  

Sincerely,

<your signature>

<your state> Voter living in <your country>

 

Note that although the ERA deadline does not appear to be constitutional, it could save time in court if Congress were to remove the deadline.  There is a similar bill in the Senate - SJRes1.  For the Senate campaign, click here.
