We pray that the Supreme Court will decide to take up our case and affirm our humanity and equality - on par with all people.

  • Join us in a Virtual Vigil to Pray for the ERA on October 8, 2020 at 5 pm PST / 8 pm EST
  • Light a candle and say a prayer for equality (we recommend a glass jar type candle that will last at least an hour)
  • Join us as we pray for justice for the 161 million women and girls living in this country and urge the Supreme Court to take up the case for the ERA.
  • During the vigil, hear more about the lawsuit and status of ERA in the courts from our lawyers and activists from around the nation.

DO YOU KNOW?

After 100 years and millions of women working hundreds of millions of hours to achieve ERA ratification, American women achieved ratification on January 27th, 2020 when Virginia became the 38th and final state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment?

Our landmark case, pending in the Supreme Court, brings American women closer to having equal rights than ever before. Our case, Equal Means Equal, The Yellow Roses, and Katherine Weitbrecht versus David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, was brought to force the Archivist to publish the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”) in the Constitution as the 28th Amendment (case #20-318).

The Supreme Court will decide on October 9, 2020, in conference, if it will include this historic case among the few it agrees to hear this year. Now, only four votes are needed to accept the case.
