Equal Rights Amendment
Equal Rights Amendment UpdateWe are happy to report that the ERA was not called for a vote this week. Thank you for all your hard work to contact your legislators and reach out to others to engage their help on this important issue.

“It is a crucial issue that people deserve to understand from their own ethical, religious and faith-based perspectives,” she said. Clinton added that she wants to examine what other countries, like the Netherlands, have experienced after enacting laws.
She had no ready answer because she hadn’t yet polled and focus grouped the issue.
