Elect Equal Rights
No Deadline on Equality
The key to ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment is electing legislators that support it over those who don't. Elections this past November helped Virginia elect a gender-equality-sense majority. We must now pursue the same for other states on the state, and national level. As youth, most of us can't vote, but we can urge those who can to elect officials that will ensure that the ERA and other gender equality legislation is made into law. See our 2020 Elect Equal Rights Campaign to elect a pro-ERA majority in the US Senate.
With the 38 states needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, only one hurdle stands in the way of enshrining gender equality into the Constitution of the United States of America: its deadline. After less than 3/4 of the states ratified the Equal Rights Amendment after its initial 7 year deadline set by Congress, Congress extended the deadline by an additional 3 years. That deadline of June 30th, 1982 still stands. It is up to us to ensure the removal of the deadline through both judicial and legislative advocacy. Join us in our campaign to remove the arbitrary deadline. Keep on reading to take action.
Gender Equality Coalition
Launched January 20th, Generation Gender Equality is a coalition of groups that are youth-led, have high youth engagement, and/or strive to be more inclusive of the youth generation. This is a coalition of groups, ranging from college campus organizations to the National Organization For Women, all working towards a more equitable future for all genders through advocating for gender equality legislation, specifically the Equal Rights Amendment. Our goal is to create a team of organizations fighting for issues that fall at the intersection of gender equality. Our power in numbers and dedication will allow for an unstoppable team, comprised of different groups who come together to achieve equality for all genders through creative demonstrations, projects, and initiatives.
