 ERA Minnesota Sends Delegation to Top National Women’s Rights #Rally4ERA in DC on Women’s Equality Day

SAINT PAUL – On Women’s Equality Day, August 26th, ERA Minnesota (ERAMN) will join delegations from across the country for the #Rally4ERA taking place in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., to call with one voice for the Equal Rights Amendment (“Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex”).
 
The
ERAMN delegation joins top national and state organizations including:  ERA Coalition, Feminist Majority, National Congress of Black Women, National Organization of Women (NOW), League of Women Voters, Equal Means Equal, Women’s March, National Women’s Political Caucus, National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, Leading Women of Tomorrow, Transformative Justice Coalition, Equality, Network, Justice for Migrant Women, Feminist Front, Women’s Media Center, Black Women’s Roundtable, American Humanist Association, Equality NOW, 38 Agree for Georgia, Supermajority, Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW), Justice for Migrant Women, MANA and many others who unite in solidarity behind passage of the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
 
“On Women’s Inequality Day 2021, we rise up to demand the same rights as a class that men as a class enjoy,” said Heather Allison, President of
ERA Minnesota. “Everyone can participate in raising the banner for ERA, either in person in DC, watching #Rally4ERAlivestreamed, or by joining one of the dozens of satellite rallies being held around the country that day. We say all the way with the ERA.”
 
“This #Rally4ERA, on the one day of the year the national press deigns to shed light on the lack of equality on account of sex in the US, is unique because of its singular focus on constitutional equality, a vital necessity to removing barriers that thwart women’s economic security”, said Betty Folliard, Founder of
ERA Minnesota. “We mean to pass the ERA now, a goal that has taken American women 245 years to achieve.”
