Women Lobbying 4 ERA in DC

Donation protected

We are many women in many women's volunteer groups, working together for our common goal; to gain equal rights. We need your donation today. This supports the women who are staying for two extra days to lobby for Equal Rights Amendment ratification after the Women's March on Washington January 2017.

Hundreds of thousands of women are coming to Washington DC, women who have it better than my grandmother. When she was born, she did not have the right to vote, keep her children if divorced, or have credit. When my mother was born, she could vote but she couldn’t have credit. When I was an adolescent, I could not make money by delivering newspapers because I was a girl.  I moved out and looked for a job and the want ads had two lists: jobs for men and jobs for women.

We’ve come a long way, but we’re not there yet.

How long are we supposed to wait?

Many of us are going to Washington to lobby for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. The ERA is an economic solvency bill. When we resolve the economic inequities, we will be ever closer to being full members of this great country.
Most women are still facing the economic barriers and that’s why I’m asking for your help.  Maybe you can’t come to Washington, but your donation can help a woman stay a few more days. They  get a hotel room and a few meals so after the march, she's still there to walk the halls of congress to lobby for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment.

Your donation will also help us provide fliers and informational handbills that will give women the words they need to make our case. 

Some of the key people involved with this are, Andrea Miller of People Demanding Action; Eileen Davis of Women-Matter; Candy Graham who is associated with both organizations; grassroots organizer Portia Boulger; and the amazing Madison Kimrey, a youth activist from North Carolina.

Please be quick and generous. We need your support in the form of money.

We’ve come a long way, but we’re not there yet. Let’s not wait any longer!

Your support literally means the world to me and to them.
