“Hello, my name is _________ and I live in (city,state)_________.
I am calling because it’s time that America formally recognize women as equal partners in America’s future.
(House) I urge Representative _________ to co-sponsor H.J. Res. 53 to remove the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment!
(Senate) I urge Senator ______________ to co-sponsor S.J. Res. 5 to remove the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment!
(Customize a statement of why you personally care about the ERA) Nevada just became the 36th state to ratify the ERA. With just two more states needed, America is poised to join the majority of developed countries that have already recognized the gender equality imperative. We cannot lead from behind.
