We are one of the hundreds of Equal Rights Amendment organizations now committed to ERA ratification by just one more state of the USA. We believe we were the first, after the now-immobile but prescient ERA Campaign Network led by Dr. Jennifer Macleod, to re-ignite the ERA effort that has coasted since 1982. ERA efforts were stalled by an incorrect belief that a time limit was invoked. It was not, is not, and we will prove that by our own recently co-created U.S. Congressional legislation.
Meanwhile, we very actively mentor the ten states routinely filing ERA ratification legislation. September 2015, the Illinois legislature barely missed ratifying the ERA By TWO votes (Illinois has since ratified!); Virginia's legislature hears ERA ratification in all its Senate committees. ERA is only stalled by the VA Assembly (a.k.a., House), so it will go before the full legislature when that happens. We need one more state to ratify the ERA. Then it goes to U.S. Congress to vote for ERA passage.
WE ARE: Family-oriented, Non-Profit, Non-Partisan, Non-Sexist. Single-Issue, All religions, All ethnicities
No Big Bosses--everyone acts autonomously; No stunting bureaucracy; No heavy lifting; No one does anything they do not want to do. And, we Listen.
Please check out our “Our Leaders” page under the "Connect” tab.
Our joyous goal is to engage all citizens of the State of Florida in the ratification effort. ERA works for all, reflecting the simple moral American value of equality, equal treatment for ALL. THE U.S. CONSTITUTION CURRENTLY DOES NOT DO THAT. NOTHING Else does that. The Right Time is RIGHT NOW — If Not NOW, then WHEN?
Begun in 2001 in an effort to achieve ratification by Florida's legislature, we have since much broadened our scope as the National Equal Rights Amendment Alliance, Inc., a 501c3. We now encompass more than 300,000 supporters and gained the support of 340 organizations AND the energized expertise of more than 3400 very Active activists who speak out, speak UP for ERA passage in extraordinary Actions! That's because all of us know that We, together, will get the ERA passed into the U.S. Constitution, that WE will Do this, ABSOLUTELY.
ACTIONS OF YOUR NATIONAL ERA ALLIANCE:
We relocate to Tallahassee, our Florida capital, annually for the Legislative Session during March and April to lobby for the annually reintroduced Equal Rights Amendment bills. Speaking at the U.S. Capitol with hundreds of other ERA organizations; advocating ERA passage into the U.S. Congress by contacting and meeting with members of U.S. Congress and state legislators to urge ERA Hearings and Votes.
The rest of the year National Equal Rights Amendment Alliance manages our outreach to those who still don't know that there is Unfinished Business for this Nation:
Yes, we really do all these year-around, every year, for we know that persistence wins, combined with facts, honesty, sincerity, respect doubled-down.
