ERA Minnesota's mission is two fold:
To that end a group of dedicated women and men decided it was time to get started! But a few women and men can't do this alone. A coalition has been formed --an alliance of like minded people and groups working together towards this common goal. (see our Allies)
We are inviting every Minnesotan, every Minnesota organization, business, nonprofit, labor union, and faith group to join us in support of an ERA in Minnesota and an ERA in our country.
ERA Minnesota Campaign
ERA Minnesota is mounting a public relations campaign, including public awareness and candidate support, to get an equal rights amendment on the ballot.
Our legislative strategy with House and Senate leadership aims to ensure passage out of both bodies during the next legislative session.
A Constitutional amendment does not have to be approved by the Governor, so if a simple majority in both the House and Senate approves, the amendment can be placed on the ballot statewide in the following elections. [learn more]
Part two of the campaign is education. We will need to educate voters statewide about the fact that we do not have an equal rights amendment in our constitution in regards to gender, and that it is necessary.
Assumed equity is not enough.
