“Equality of rights under the law shall not be abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex."
On March 17, the House of Representatives passed a joint resolution to remove the time limit placed on the Equal Rights Amendment (HJ Res 17) to the Constitution. Now this will move to the Senate. The House also voted to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), a landmark bill that covers everyone.
From Shari Temple, the DA ERA Task Force Chair:
The ERA Task Force needs your help NOW.
Please contact your state’s senators.
Post your story by March 24. Login to Democrats Abroad before you post your story.
Your stories on why ERA is important to you will be included in hand delivered packets to all Congress members. They could help influence some Senators to vote for SJRes 1. Equal rights must be anchored in our Constitution so they cannot be undone with an executive order. Tell Congress your story – www.democratsabroad.org/era_stories.
Please join us in telling Congress why the ERA is important to you. The DA ERA Task Force will share your story with House and Senate members. Simply go to https://www.democratsabroad.org/era_stories. We want to see a story for your Senators. You can write as few as a couple of sentences or a full dissertation (but in 500 word increments). And you can even include a photo, ideally with a pro-ERA sign. Together, we CAN make a difference.
Thanks for your help in promoting the Equal Rights Amendment and equality for everyone in US.
