ERA Progress Report

July 7, 2022
​Here’s a happy ERA progress report:On Friday, July 1, the New York State Legislature passed their state ERA Bill. It is very expansive and includes many groups and abortion access. NY ratification process requires the bill to pass through 2 Legislatures then go onto the ballot; that could happen in either 2023 or 2024, though activists hope for 2024 because of the greater reach.  Here’s the bill: https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2021/S1268 Nevada [...]

​Here’s a happy ERA progress report:

  1. On Friday, July 1, the New York State Legislature passed their state ERA Bill. It is very expansive and includes many groups and abortion access. NY ratification process requires the bill to pass through 2 Legislatures then go onto the ballot; that could happen in either 2023 or 2024, though activists hope for 2024 because of the greater reach.

  2. Nevada currently has a state ERA on the November Ballot this year. It reads: – “Equality  of  rights  under  the  law  shall  not  be denied  or  abridged  by  this  State  or  any  of  its  political subdivisions  on  account  of race,  color,  creed, sex,  sexual orientation,  gender  identity  or  expression,  age,  disability, ancestry or national origin”.
    Here’s the Bill:  https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/81st2021/Bill/7336/Overview
  3. HRes 891- introduced in the U.S. House this year – now has 179 co-sponsors. It states: This resolution expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the proposed constitutional amendment known as the Equal Rights Amendment has been duly proposed by Congress and ratified by the states and is therefore valid as the Twenty-Eighth Amendment to the Constitution. (The proposed amendment prohibits the United States or any state from denying or abridging equal rights under the law on account of sex.)

  4. The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (https://www.nobel-women.org/ – one of our 250 national coalition partners) has taken it upon themselves to do a study of every state’s statutes to develop lists per state of laws that discriminate against women. They will be publishing their findings for states to make necessary changes in law to help achieve equality.
