ERA Rally and Lobby Day in Springfield – 5/8
May 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Rally begins at 12pm at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield at the Lincoln Statue! Let's show the Illinois General Assembly how many people from across Illinois expect to see the Equal Rights Amendment ratified in the House this May!!
No, the Equal Rights Amendment *still* has not been passed, which means gender equality is still NOT part of the U.S. Constitution.
YOU can be a part of making sure that the ERA finally gets ratified! If Illinois ratifies the ERA that means that only ONE more state would be needed. Congress passed it back in 1972 but needed 38 states to ratify it before going into effect. Illinois could be #37! For details, click here.
