EME Kicks Off Busy Fall ERA Education and Advocacy Schedule

Equal Means Equal unveiled Thursday an impressive slate of events beginning this month to educate and inspire voters about the impact and urgency of adding the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

At the center of what is shaping up as a jam-packed schedule through the fall election season is a free livestreaming concert for ERA called #FaceTheMusic4ERA organized by ERA Minnesota and the Face The Music Collective. The concert scheduled for August 26th (Women’s Equality Day) is supported by a comprehensive consortium of women’s groups. Equal Means Equal President Kamala Lopez will emcee the concert at the request of event organizers.

“As women come together across the country to fight for our full legal equality, we are looking at creative ways to raise public awareness for ERA,” said Lopez, an activist filmmaker and actress. “The concept of intersectional discrimination is finally becoming tangible to more and more Americans. This moment has great potential to communicate how the Equal Rights Amendment would immediately improve the lives of all Americans; men, women and children, but in particular women of color. Economically, of course, but in so many other ways that directly address the zeitgeist.”

Lopez added, “Recent attacks on our citizens’ civil rights are a stark warning that until equality regardless of sex is in the Constitution, American women can count on nothing but our own vigilance and determination. It’s doubly important to elect pro-ERA candidates to office in November at every level. That is something Equal Means Equal takes very seriously and has the infrastructure to accomplish again this year.”

“We are gearing up for a very busy fall, keeping ERA voters informed and energized,” said Equal Means Equal Vice President Natalie White, a visual artist and activist. “At the same time, we will be entering the next stage of our battle in federal court to protect the Equal Rights Amendment and see to it that it becomes the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

Your support keeps the fight for equality alive. Please help us raise the funds to continue fuel the fight for equal rights during these very difficult time by purchasing Legalize Equality merchandise or making a donation, large or small to keep us going.

With love and thanks,

Kamala and Natalie
