THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT IS BACK ON THE NATIONAL AGENDA

By EME Team

This week saw a massive shift in the public’s awareness of the ERA with multiple shows on various networks including EQUAL MEANS EQUAL's Executive Director, Kamala Lopez on PBS’ “To The Contrary.”

Watch EME Supporter and Academy Award winning filmmaker Michael Moore’s urgent comment about the Equal Rights Amendment on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell:

And despite some misinformation (both deliberate and unwitting), the Equal Rights Amendment’s cultural importance, legal significance and present urgency is on full view.

Lawmakers, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Tom Reed (R-NY) discuss the renewed fight for equal rights and the historical importance of Virginia becoming the 38th state to ratify ERA with Soledad O’Brien in an excellent discussion here:

 

We must keep up the push to bring ERA and the need for basic equality for all Americans to the forefront of American consciousness now.  Please share widely.

Love and thanks,
