One more state. Not one more generation. We urge you to participate in ERA-NC Advocacy Day on Wednesday, June 27th at the NCGA in Raleigh. This CALL TO ACTION comes on the heels of Illinois becoming the 37th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Only one more state ratification is needed to amend the US Constitution. NC is now the face of thenational conversation. Our state is poised to make history, becoming the 38th and final state needed to push the passage of the amendment over the top.
But ERA bills S782 and H1072 are sitting in Rules Committees in both chambers, unconsidered and unheard as session draws to a close. We need to lobby for the ERA NOW. Don’t miss this moment in history as we call on the General Assembly to account for continued inaction and prepare to HEAR FROM US in 2019. We will not stop. We will not wait another generation. #OneMoreState #NotOneMoreGeneration #ALLforERA
