3. Show Support for ERA
Let’s Rally for Ratification!
The Oklahoma Women’s Coalition joined the Equal Rights Amendment Coalition on an amicus brief to the Supreme Court of the United States in Virginia, Illinois, and Nevada v. Ferriero. The brief is part of a broad litigation strategy aimed towards ratifying the ERA and includes a diverse array of perspectives to articulate the ERA’s rich history and its vital importance today.
The case challenges the 1982 ERA ratification congressional deadline on the basis the deadline was not included in the ERA nor does Article V of the United States Constitution set deadlines for the ratification of amendments. Thus, recent ratifications are eligible towards ratification, including Virginia’s January 2020 ratification in which it became the 38th and final state needed to ratify the ERA.
There will be a rally at the White House 1/27, that will be live streamed! Tune in, tag us (#ratifyERA2022), and help celebrate! Details below:
