Equal Rights Amendment Update
We 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. Your efforts combined with divine intervention kept the ERA from moving forward. Your voices were truly heard in Springfield this week!

The resolution to ratify the ERA still remains on the table and can still be voted on, but the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House will not meet again until mid January 2018. Click here for more

No exaggeration: next Supreme Court appointment could “reshape American life”

If by chance you missed “The Supreme Court: What’s at Stake in this Presidential Election?,” by all means take a few minutes out and read the speech given yesterday on the Senate floor by Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sen. Grassley referenced a very, very important article written by Adam Liptak for the New York Times: “Supreme Court Appointment Could Reshape American Life.”

The headline is no exaggeration.

The immediate context is President Obama’s attempt to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia with a justice more to his liking–more like Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan–before his second term ends. But the larger context is the possibility that the next President could easily nominate three or even four justices.
