What does it mean to be “ERA Certified”? 

As an ERA certified candidate you must:

  1. Recognize the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) as fully ratified and advocate for its publication on the campaign and when in office.
  2. Support the ERA and advocate for it not only during your campaign but also when in office.
  3. Incorporate the ERA into your campaign policies, messaging and talking points.
  4. Speak up in favor of the ERA in public events, with the media and on all social platforms throughout the campaign.
  5. You publicly and proudly share that you are ERA Certified.

It’s possible you may be listed as an “ERA Supporter” based on your survey responses, but still not receive the ERA Certified candidate designation based on other available information.

What will the ERA Coalition do with ERA Certified candidates?

  1. The ERA Coalition will send out timely press releases announcing batches of candidates for office in 2024 who are ERA Certified. This can include local or state press outreach for individual candidates, or ERA Certified candidates in a state or region. (Candidates can see a sample press release below.)
  2. The ERA Coalition will also share announcements of ERA Certified candidates on social media that include our ERA Certified designation badge. (Candidates can see the badge icon below.)
  3. The ERA Coalition may also share news of newly designated candidates with the Coalition supporters email list and Coalition partners on the ground in the states, in accordance with FEC guidelines.
