ERA CONTACT U.S. SENATORS CAMPAIGN

Guidelines

Click here to find out if your two Senators are already a Co-Sponsor or not

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

Here's the link for contact information.

Postcards

We recommend sending a photo postcard from your country.   This is cheaper postage, does not have to be checked for potential poison in the letter upon arrival, and should draw extra attention to the card and hopefully the message.

Here's some sample text.

For those not yet a co-sponsor:

I believe women should have equal rights in our U.S. Constitution.  I hope you do as well.   Please support ERA bill SJR1.  

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 U.S. Constitution.  Thank you for co-sponsoring ERA bill SJR1.  

Sincerely,

<your signature>

<your state> Voter living in <your country>

Once you have sent, please fill out the simple form so we can track our effectiveness - http://bit.ly/era-postcard.

Phone Calls

You can also call your Senators to ask for their support or thank them.

Here are a couple of sample scripts.

For those not yet a co-sponsor:

Hello, my name is {your name} and I'm a {your voting state} voter currently living in {country name}.   I'm calling to request Senator {Senator's name} to become a co-sponsor of bill SJRes 1.   This is the bill that eliminates the deadline from the Equal Rights Amendment.

Eighty five percent (85%) of all countries in the world have equal rights for women in their constitution {including where I live now (if that is true)}.   I want to see the same for my home country.

If time, explain why you, as an American living abroad, care about the Equal Rights Amendment.   

I do hope that the Senator will show his/her support for women by co-sponsoring SJRes 1.

Thank you for your time. 

For those already a co-sponsor:

Hello, my name is {your name} and I'm a {your voting state} voter currently living in {country name}.   I'm calling to thank Senator {Senator's name} for being a co-sponsor of bill SJRes 1.   This is the bill that eliminates the deadline from the Equal Rights Amendment.

Eighty five percent (85%) of all countries in the world have equal rights for women in their constitution {including where I live now (if that is true)}.   I want to see the same for my home country.
