The House voted to remove the time limit on February 13, 2020…The Senate is next.

Welcome to an Equal Future.

Our goal is to amend the Constitution to ensure that one cannot be discriminated against because of one’s sex. The ERA Coalition is comprised of some 100 national and local organizations across the country working for the equality of girls and women, boys and men. We strategize with states seeking ratification. We work with legislators on the amendment and other ERA bills. We’ve provided groundbreaking research. Our team of legal scholars has examined the next steps to a fully realized Equal Rights Amendment.

 

There has been extraordinary progress in the movement toward full equality. While Alice Paul began it all in 1923, and Congress passed the ERA in 1972, by 1982 only 35 states had ratified, three shy of the necessary 38. But in 2017 Nevada ratified the ERA; the first state in 40 years to do so; Illinois ratified in 2018. And Virginia ratified it on January 27th, 2020, and on February 13th the House of Representatives dissolved the time limit written in the amendment’s introduction. It’s now on to the Senate!

Breaking News: Tell the Senate to Vote for Equality!

SJ Res 6, introduced by bipartisan co-lead sponsors Senator Ben Cardin (MD) and Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK), currently has 49 co-sponsors. We believe if brought to the floor the bill would pass, bringing us one step closer to seeing equality become reality in this country. The leadership of the Senate has vowed not to allow a vote, but we won’t take no for an answer.

Join the ERA Coalition in urging the U.S. Senate to pass SJ Res 6 to remove the time limit from the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)!
