Lots of good news at the federal level:
Virginia continues their march to ratify the federal ERA with action days at the capitol there. To date the VA Senate passed the ERA bill and currently it is on hold in the General Assembly there awaiting a hearing.
Arizona, Missouri, North Carolina and Georgia all have pushes to become the 38th state in the nation to ratify the federal ERA as well. And our national coalitions - ERA Coalition, ERA Action, Equal Means Equal etc - are ramping up for the fight once the 38th state ratifies.
We are united, we’re organized, and we’re ready to take ERA to fruition!
Meanwhile, the great news is that Deleware just passed a state ERA which will be added to their constitution. Congrats, Delaware! You just became state #25 to addd the ERA to your state constitution!
ERA Minnesota (ERAMN) is a coalition of individuals and organizations working to secure an Equal Rights Amendment to the State and Federal Constitutions.
