Youth for ERA Lobby Day!
Generation Ratify’s Youth For the Equal Rights Amendment Lobby Day was a success! We brought 60 youth activists to the Senate buildings, 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 are proud to announce that there are two new cosponsors to the resolution, Senator Cantwell and Senator Coons. Huge thanks to @platformwomen and @jmandel37 for making this lobby day a possibility. An additional thank you to our cosponsors, @nfty_mar, @genzgirlgang, @dcteensaction, @period.dc, @wpgirlup, & @lhsgirlup.
Now it is time to organize an in-district meeting with your Senator!
