Women's Equality Day 2021
On March 8th, Generation Ratify hosted a virtual lobby day with 80+ young people to advocate for HJ Res 17 and SJ Res 1, bills to remove the deadline on the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. We held dozens of meetings with Representatives and Senators urging them to support the notion that there is no deadline on equality. HJ Res 17 passed the house on March 17th.
On March 18th and 19th, we hosted direct actions across the country to pressure the Senate to act on the Equal Rights Amendment, from a banner drop in North California, to a rally in Michigan, to a sign parade in Florida, and chalking right outside of Mitch McConnell’s house– we raised some hell across the country. We are continuing to build off of this momentum with consistent actions and lobbying meetings to pressure Senators to support and act on the ERA.
