On Saturday, May 13th 2017, ERAMN Warriors and Allies celebrated with ERAMN Founder & President Betty Folliard as she was awarded the DFL Hall of Fame Woman of Distinction Award at the organization's Annual Luncheon.
Today we honor the legacy of feminist giant Koryne Horbal, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. on Women’s Issues, who helped write the international treaty #CEDAW (The Commission on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women) and who was instrumental in ratifying the proposed #EqualRightsAmendment to the Constitution back in the 1970’s. That effort was scuttled by an artificial deadline imposed on the #ERA and remains the unfinished business of our day that ERA Minnesota continues to pursue. We are deeply grateful to Koryne for her fearless spirit and it is her inspiration that helped birth our organization.
ERA Minnesota (ERAMN) is a coalition of individuals and organizations working to secure an Equal Rights Amendment to the State and Federal Constitutions.
