On this day: Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat
December 01, 2023
Without question women have made progress--and we celebrate our first Black and Asian American woman Vice President. While this is a historic first, VP Harris is unfortunately not equal to men in the Constitution. You can make a big impact in ending sex discrimination by supporting the ERA Coalition.
The ERA Coalition and our sister organization Fund for Women's Equality, is a growing coalition of over 115 diverse organizations across the country, representing millions of people. We center our work on those most vulnerable to systemic sexism and racism: Black and Indigenous women, women of color, and all genders and gender expressions. We advocate in Congress, the courts, and the states to move the 28th Amendment forward. The ERA Amendment was passed by Congress in 1972; in 2020 Virginia became the 38th and final state needed to ratify. All conditions have been met to enshrine the 28th Amendment, but we have some important hurdles to overcome in 2021. We are very close to finally adding women into the Constitution.
Please consider making a donation on Giving Day- Tuesday, December 1st. In honor of the proposed 28th Amendment, one of our donors has generously offered to match gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $28,000.
Nothing will stop us if we join together. Make this year, your legacy for future generations.
Any contribution you make will be doubled through midnight December 1st.
