This is what Sylvia Ramos has to say about the ERA—
At the end of January, two identical resolutions were introduced in Congress. H.J.Res.25 and S.J.Res.4, to affirm the validity of the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”) as the 28th Amendment. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings in next few weeks.
None of our Senators or Representatives in NM are listed as cosponsors of the Joint Resolutions. Please email, send postcards and write on their congressional websites asking them to do so.
And email/send postcard to Senator Murkowski thanking her for her support.
