WHAT IS A “TOP PRIORITY” FOR THE US SENATE?
We are getting the impression that an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution is NOT a top priority for the US Senate. The US House of Representatives considered an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution a top priority when it passed legislation removing the time limits on ratification.
And now we women of the US must convince the US Senate that this is an important goal. Why? The 100th anniversary of the US Constitution in 2020 wasn’t enough? The 100th anniversary of US women working for an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution in 2023 isn’t enough?
THE PROPOSED ERA TO THE US CONSTITUTION INCLUDES MEN
YES. The equal rights amendment to the US Constitution protects people of all sexes and identifications.
By 2025, the goal is to have 500 partners working for the passage of the ERA. This suggests that our struggle may be a long one. What do we US women have to do now? Cartwheels? A standing army? A letter campaign to the US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer? That’s what the ERA Coalition is recommending.
Since SuffrageCentennials.com is a partner of the ERA Coalition, we have committed ourselves to write letters to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
This web site has been powered by the efforts of volunteers for almost a decade. We honor the contributions of many volunteers, now and over 100 years ago, who did what they could so that we could build on that equality base and move the support work forward. What’s the fundamental problem? Is it because US women have conducted a nonviolent campaign for equal rights since the founding of this nation? There seems to be a continuing problem. What is it? Is it required now that US women must write letters to Chuck Schumer in order to move this issue forward?
WE ARE PARTNERS IN THE ERA COALITION
SuffrageCentennials.com sent a representative to the ERA Coalition meeting in September 2022. We’ll be sending email updates and publish on an irregular basis about the ERA or equal rights amendment progress during 2023 until the recruiting is complete for more grassroots volunteers to share the work load.
Remember that some day we will all come together. Build a beloved community so we keep the instances of burnout under control.
