We’re limping along and are buoyed by expressions of appreciation that our efforts are noted and welcome. This is the passing of a torch to another phase of the suffrage centennial movement. In 2023 women in the United States have been on the case and working to see passage of an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution.
The inspiration and acceptance of this rite of passage is documented in a video about standing on the shoulders of those who have come before us and the importance of passing a torch to those who carry on the work. This video tells the story:
We have volunteered our hopes and dreams to the limit and now we’re taking a much-needed rest.. There are many important issues facing us and Planet Earth.
WE SENT LETTER #6 TO US SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER—DID YOU CALL HIS OFFICE OR REACH OUT?
The ERA Coalition is pleased at the Congressional guarantees for same sex and interracial marriages. This reinforces the urgency of expressing support for Congress to remove the time limits on the equal rights amendment to the US Constitutions. Keep those support messages ongoing to Chuck Schumer. We just sent Letter #6.
Find out what you can do to get the US Senate to a vote on getting rid of the ERA ratification time limits. We have mailed Letter #6 to mover and shaker Chuck Schumer, Hart Senate Building, Room 322. Washington, DC 20510.
Next year (2023) is the 100th year of US women working on an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution. That’s why SuffrageCentennials.com is involved.
We are partners in the ERA Coalition with its almost 300 partners also joining in with the effort. Need a speaker at your next organizational meeting? Of those out there… is Zoe Nicholson. She’s available to speak.
GOP IS WARMING ON THE ISSUE OF THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
Resistance is eroding to an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution, according to an article issued by the Brennan Center for Justice, as well as contributors to a town hall presentation by the ERA Coalition in the aftermath of the November 2022 US elections. There are still legal hurdles to overcome, however. And 2023 remains as the 100th. anniversary of US women working in support of an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution.
