Education and advocacy related to the Equal Rights Amendment.
LET’S PUT WOMEN IN THE CONSTITUTION
It is bizarre that women in the United States of America still do not have equal protection under the nation’s highest legal authority, the Constitution. As Justice Scalia stated, “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t.”
Our League Action Team is committed to seeing ERA ratified by the NC General Assembly. Just two more states are needed to reach the required 38 necessary for the amendment to pass! Our plan:
- Collect Resolutions in support of passage from town and county boards, churches, clubs, businesses—and take them to Raleigh.
This extraordinary film is the definitive documentary on the status of women in America today. Invite friends to your home for a screening or show it at a meeting or reception. See the trailer at www.equalmeansequal.com/trailer
Ask your local government, club, church to put you on the agenda for a 6-minute powerpoint. The slides and script are all ready for you, can be tailored to your town and sent to you by email. It describes the benefits for women, men and families that passage of ERA could provide.
Once people understand the true meaning of the Equal Rights Amendment, how it can increase family security, help equalize pay, give victims of domestic abuse stronger legal protection, they are very likely to sign. The League has had great success in eastern NC, collecting resolutions from every group approached.
We intend to take hundreds of these Resolutions to Raleigh and show them how big, how broad support for ERA is….how the majority of their constituents are for it!
WE NEED YOU!
The way we know this will work is by getting the whole state to take part, beach to mountains, cities to small towns. We can send you information about getting and screening the film….email you the powerpoint that’s ready for you to present….and provide a template for the Resolution to print and get signed. Hope to hear from you very soon.
