Almost 100 years ago suffrage activist Alice Paul prepared the language for an equal rights to the US Constitution. She spent the rest of her life working on this. This effort is not forgotten. In early December of 2022, ERA Coalition rep Zakiya Thomas circulated the above message. We’ve been sending letters to the US Congress. Now the plan is for us all to wear ERA t-shirts. Go the the ERA Coalition and order a t-shirt.
At present, there is a mysterious effort underway to pass legislation to remove the time limit on ratification that could be voted on.
We are sending letters to ask for this. Will it happen? We monitor the ERA Coalition regularly for news of an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution.
ERA Coalition rep Zakiya Thomas says we are “close” to making an equal rights amendment a “reality.” If this is true, buy and wear an ERA t-shirt. Carry an ERA bag. Make sure your elected rep in Washington, DC is aware of your support. If it’s merely a matter of purchasing ERA memorabilia, buy bags and t-shirts for everyone you know.
It appears as if the rationale behind buying t-shirts and bags is to “move the masses.” So start holding your breath because we are “close” to making an ERA a “reality.”
In 2023, US women will have been working for an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution for 100 years.
Remember to buy and wear an ERA t-shirt. And carry an ERA bag.
