We are the only industrialized nation with a written Constitution that does not address the denial of rights for more than half of our population. It has been nearly 100 years since this fight began to enshrine, into the Constitution, that equality of rights cannot be denied or abridged on account of sex. We urge the Senate to join the House in passing this legislation and making history this session.
The ERA Coalition, along with these cosponsing organizations: Black Women’s Roundtable, Feminist Majority, Generation Ratify, League of Women Voters, National Organization for Women, and Women's March, invite you to join us for a Week of Action: A Push to Bring S.J. Res 1 to the Floor for a Vote from September 6- 9, to raise the ERA's profile before the Senate and urge Majority Leader Schumer to schedule S.J. Res 1/H.J. Res 17 for a vote.
Tuesday, Sept 6, 2022
Action: Sign-on to the public letter asking Leader Schumer to bring SJ Res 1/HJ Res 17 for a vote.
The House voted to pass H.J. Res 17 on March 17, 2021 with bipartisan support. The fate of the ERA now lies in the hands of the Senate. Sign your name to our letter to @SenSchumer requesting he brings the ERA to the floor. https://bit.ly/3wDW1iO #ERANow #Senate4ERA #SJRes1
