January 8 through May 15

What You Can Do

The first step is to contact your MO General Assembly members and ask them to co-sponsor the ERA bill in their chamber. 

On the Senate side, where the bill has been referred to the Rules Committee,  also consider reaching out to the Rules committee members to ask them to hold a hearing. 

Not sure how or what to say when you reach out?  There are several campaigns initiated by Democrats Abroad that can inspire you. You can find the list and details here.

You can also find the list of state legislature members along with their email, address and phone number here.
