WE NEED YOUR HELP. Be a part of the Virginia’s Vigil tonight and let your voice heard.

By Kamala, Natalie and the entire EME team

We will be holding vigil outside of the Virginia Capitol Building at 1000 Banks Street entrance from 3:00pm today when the Virginia legislature gavels out until 11 am tomorrow when session opens again. 

We welcome activists who can make it to Richmond to come join us in shifts and those that can’t will able to call in and speak via telephone. This vigil will be live streamed on the VAratifyERA Facebook page. And we have creative ways you can get involved from all over the U.S. and abroad.

Email Thila (t@equalmeansequal.com) to confirm your time in the schedule. If you are calling in we welcome you to write your own speech or recite your favorite speech of women’s rights activists throughout history. Look up your favorite speech by Sojourner Truth, Shirley Chisholm, Alice Paul, or Lucy Stone.

Also, if you would like to send gifts to the activists holding vigil you can send hot chocolate, coffee, umbrellas, or an LED candle we can light for you can send it via Uber eats, GrubHub, or Amazon Prime to 1000 Bank Street, Richmond VA  23219

If any of these seems to be impossible for you, Please call on Kirk Cox (804-698-1066) to pull the ERA out of committee and put it on the floor of the House for a full vote immediately!

Equal Means Equal will be filling up the time 7:20 pm est 4:20 pm pst slot and the at 11:20pm est 8:20pm pst slot. We encourage people to call in and at all times but Equal Means Equal will be responsible for filling these time slots at the vigil. 

The time is now. Let’s do this together.

With love and thanks
