Thank You to all those who support our Women’s Equality Day public awareness event in Washington DC on August 26 at the Washington DC Freedom Plaza, including representatives from United4Equality LLC, ERA NOW, NOW Maryland, NOW Virginia, and Responsible for Equality And Liberty (R.E.A.L.).
We reached out to many people leaving work to update them on the urgent need to support Constitutional equality for all American women through the Equal Rights Amendment, which states:
“SECTION 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
“SECTION 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”
“SECTION 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.”
It is such a fundamental human right and such a simple message that we were able to publish this on business card size handouts to distribute to the public!
