The 2020 election is pivotal to the future of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). In January 2020, Virginia voted to become the 38th, and final needed, state to ratify the ERA. In February 2020, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove the time limit from the ERA, and the Senate companion bill is currently pending in the U.S. Senate. It is more important than ever to make sure that we are using every platform available us to insist our elected officials and those in positions of power are pro-equality and agree that there is no time limit on equality.
Below you will find information on the candidate stances on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) for the following elected offices:
- US Senate: 35 (out of 100) seats that are up for election
- US House of Representatives: all 435 seats
The ERA Coalition sent a survey to over 1,200 candidates in order to obtain information on their position on the ERA. If we did not receive a response to our survey, we used public records and statements, if available, by the candidates to determine their stances. We are happy to amend as information comes in. Please reach out to us with any additional information you have on candidates by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
