TAKE ACTION

URGENT - Publication of Equal Rights Amendment

Activists:

 

Last night, a draft Supreme Court decision, overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked.

 

Since November, we have had countless meetings and correspondence with White House Counsel and U.S. Senators regarding the publication of the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”) and how it can save Roe v. Wade and equality for all. They all have known for months.

 

Yet the Biden/Harris Administration refuses to publish (falsely and misleadingly claiming that Congress has to take action) and continues to actively fight against the ERA in Court. And the Senate has done nothing to demand the President publish the ERA.

 

The very same Biden/Harris Administration that campaigned hard on its support for women and the LGBTQ+ community, and they responded by campaigning and voting for them and donating in droves. “The Biden Agenda for Women” specifically acknowledged that Equal Rights Amendment has been ratified.

 

We communicated with the Biden/Harris Administration yesterday morning, after speaking to them last Thursday, and understand that publication was being discussed. We reached out again last night after the draft decision was made public.

 

Time for the Biden/Harris Administration to live up to its oath “to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” The failure to do so is an abuse of power negatively impacting all Americans, but particularly 167 million women and girls - and the polar opposite of what they promised!

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!

We must put pressure on the White House to get this over the finish line! It is the only chance we have of saving reproductive rights. The ERA is currently and already the 28th Amendment. Its publication – a simple ministerial act – is the only thing that could put an end to the baseless attacks against women, bodily autonomy and the LGBTQ+ community!

TO HELP, PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES RIGHT NOW AND (1) EMAIL PRESIDENT BIDEN, (2) EMAIL VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS, and (3) POST COMMENTS ON FACEBOOK POSTS OF THE BIDEN/HARRIS ADMINISTRATION.  Instructions and sample letters and Facebook comments may be found HERE.

Sign onto the Letter to Remove ERA Deadline 

Shattering Glass and its partners in the ERA Coalition sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Schumer urging him to schedule a floor vote on the bipartisan resolution to remove the arbitrary time limit from the Equal Rights Amendment. A copy of the letter may be found here. Please show your support for the ERA by signing on to the letter here.

Fillibuster and Build Back Better

Contact your U.S. Senators and request that (1) the filibuster be eliminated, and (2) that the Senate immediately pass the Build Back Better bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes more affordable, quality childcare, universal pre-K, and paid family and medical leave, which is the provision most at risk - despite be supported by 73% of Americans. The U.S. is one of six countries in the world (and the only developed country) without paid leave. Contact information for your Senators may be found here.
