Senator Elizabeth Warren Signs On to SJ Res 15

Written by  Tammy Simkins

A Major Victory for ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) advocates happened today as Senator Elizabeth Warren becomes the 32nd co-sponsor on Senator Ben Cardin’s bi-partisan bill, SJRES15 to remove the deadline to ratify the ERA.

Senator Warren is more than just a number in the support column for ERA activists; as we know that the Senator firmly stands for the legislation she endorses. With her record of standing up for the 99%, she will undoubtedly be a champion for ensuring the ERA becomes the 28th Amendment to our Constitution now that she has added her name to the growing list.

Please join us in showering Senator Warren with gratitude.

Then call and ask them to oppose Fast Track on the Trans Pacific Partnership.

Sample script is below.

Script

“I'm a constituent, and I am strongly opposed to my representative giving away Congress’ constitutional authority to control our trade policy. We send people to Congress to stand up for us, not give away their power to stop more American job offshoring and protect us from dangerous imported food that doesn’t meet our safety standards. This latest so-called trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), would not only do that - but also ban Buy American and increase our medicine prices. That’s why it’s crucial that Congress not give away its authority to make sure every provision of TPP is in our interest before this massive deal can be signed. Good trade deals don’t need to be railroaded through Congress using Fast Track. I hope my representative will commit to opposing this outrageous legislation.”
