American women and our allies have been working for ninety-seven years for this moment and it is finally here.Please join us in this important campaign to urge the incoming administration to declare their commitment to the full equality of all persons by promising to publish the Equal Rights Amendment immediately.
It is up to us to make clear that THIS is the moment and respectfully but firmly request that the United States Archivist be directed to publish the ERA as the 28th Amendment to the Constitution on January 27th of 2021, the one-year anniversary of the ratification of the 38th state in Virginia, January 27th, 2020
We have an opportunity in the next two months to build on the momentum we have created for ERA and ride it over the finish line on the one-year anniversary of our victory in Virginia. We need your help creating video statements and posting them on social media.
1. Make your video statement and send it to T@equalmeansequal.com using your version of the following text:
Congratulations to the new Biden/Harris administration!

We urge you not to ask us to wait a moment longer for our hard-won equal rights. On January 27th of 2021, please thank the women of America for their support by announcing the publication of the ERA as the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and finally legalizing our equality.
