ERA Minnesota's mission is two fold:
Learn more about current standing of the ERA on MPR - with Rep. Kaohly Vang Her and Betty Folliard, Pres. Emeritus of ERA MN. July 2, 2019.
To that end, a group of dedicated women and men decided it was time to get started! A coalition has been formed -- an alliance of like minded people and groups working together towards this common goal.
We are inviting every Minnesotan, every organization, business, nonprofit, labor union, and faith group in the state to join us in support of an ERA for Minnesota and an ERA for our country. [see who's with us - Our Allies]
ERA Minnesota Campaign
ERA Minnesota worked hard to garner public awareness and candidate support during the 2018 elections, 2019 elections and 2020 elections. We were also able to get ERA legislation passed out of House in the 2019-2020 legislative session, but not in the Senate.
Our next step is passing the legislation out of both the MN House (again) and Senate during the 2021-2022 legislative session.
A Constitutional amendment does not have to be approved by the Governor, so a simple majority in both the House and Senate is all that's needed for the amendment to be placed on the ballot in the next statewide election in 2022. [learn more]
Part two of the campaign will be 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.
NOW is the Time to ensure EQUAL JUSTICE for ALL!
