We are supporting legislative efforts to fast-track the ERA by removing the deadline for ratification. Of the required 38 states, 35 ratified the ERA before the deadline. We want to continue ratifying states without having to start over. In addition to contacting our local and national legislators, we are asking popular media commentators and public personalities to think about the ERA, talk about the ERA and help us raise a groundswell of popular support for this long overdue constitutional guarantee of equal rights for all. Following is a link to a 2013 Congressional Research Service opinion on ratification of the ERA.

Raise Awareness with our ERA Mini-Booklet!
One page, printed on one side only, folds into an 8-page booklet.
Here is the booklet file.
And here is the instruction file.
Creating these booklets is a fun group activity. Because of their small size and intriguing design, people will more often pick them up, or accept them when you hand them out at rallies and other events.
