Youth for the ERA Lobby Day

Generation Ratify’s Youth For the Equal Rights Amendment Lobby Day brought 60 youth activists to Capitol Hill, demanding that our lawmakers enshrine gender equality into the Constitution of the United States of America.

Meeting with 14 Senate Office’s, we advocated for S.J. Res. 6, the removal of the deadline on the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. We spent the day amplifying the youth voice and telling our stories. We were proud to bring on two new cosponsors to the resolution, Senator Cantwell and Senator Coons.

Huge thanks to Platform and Jennifer Mandleblatt for making this lobby day a possibility. An additional thank you to our cosponsors, NFTY MARGen Z Girl GangDC Teens Action, Period DC, & Girl Up NoVA.
