A group to support organizing for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) of the Democracy and Human Right Amendments.

The ERA has already been passed by the requisite number of states and needs Congress to pass an act that eliminates the original deadline which ended in 1982.  The amendment read as follows:

Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.


A vital resource for understanding what needs to be done to pass the Equal Rights Amendment and to get involved. https://www.equalrightsamendment.org/
