Take Action: ERA Fight Moves to Senate

LWVUS has supported and pushed for ratification of the ERA since it was first passed by Congress in 1972. Leagues across the country have worked to engage lawmakers and organize at the grassroots level to ensure equal rights for all, regardless of sex. On January 27, 2020, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
  
In February, the U.S. House successfully passed, a bipartisan resolution removing the ratification deadline on the Equal Rights Amendment. Now our fight moves onto the Senate, where an identical bipartisan resolution is ready to move forward. 

  
There is more to do to get this across the finish line. Reach out to your Senator now and urge them to support S.J. Res. 6, legislation to remove the ERA’s ratification deadline.
