Join us on July 13th at the Maple Grove Days Parade as we let the participating MN House and Senate Leadership know that the time for the Equal Rights Amendment is now! We want a hearing and a vote for the Equal Rights Amendment in the MN State Legislature in 2018 session. Despite winning the right to vote, we still don’t have equal rights under the law. We have waited long enough!
At an ERA rally at the Capitol earlier this year, Senate Committee Chair Warren Limmer (who decides what bills get heard) stated that he did not believe women care about legislation which declares women have equal rights under the law – this despite 600 women gathered in front of the Senate and the House chambers, chanting “ERA – All the Way!”
Both Sen. Limmer and Majority House Leader, Rep. Joyce Peppin, (as well as US Rep. Erik Paulsen), will be in the parade. Let’s make it clear to them that we do care, we are not going away and it is time for Minnesota to vote on this legislation.
Put on your Women’s March t-shirt and your pussy hat/ears, bring your loud voice and your ERA sign, and let your patriotism fly high for the Equal Rights Amendment at the Maple Grove Parade.
