We know we have majority support in the Senate to remove the time limit blocking the ERA — BUT a Mitch McConnell-led filibuster could derail more than 100 years of feminists’ work, marching, rallying, and persevering. We cannot let that happen.
8 in 10 U.S. adults favor adding the ERA to the Constitution, and with the House of Representatives voting last month to eliminate the arbitrary timeline on equality, it is high time for the Senate to act.
We owe it to ourselves and all future generations — to eliminate persistent sex discrimination and create new opportunities.
Simply put: We must end the Senate filibuster, not only for the ERA, but also to pass federal legislation for voting rights, to pass the George Floyd Criminal Justice reform bill, raise the minimum wage, deal with climate change, pass commonsense gun laws, reducing violence against women and increasing access to reproductive rights and justice.
