It’s time for Illinois to ratify ERA

Once more, the State of Illinois has an opportunity to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It should act to do so quickly. The ERA quite simply establishes gender equality under the law.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — If the campaign is any indication, a proposal to give Oregon women a stronger safeguard against discrimination could win in a landslide. Twenty arguments in support of adding an equal rights amendment to the Oregon Constitution — from Democrats and Republicans — appear in the voters' pamphlet that just arrived at homes ahead of the Nov. 4 election. Meanwhile, not one person or group wrote an argument in opposition to Ballot Measure 89, and no money has been raised to defeat it.

Economic and Social Justice

The enormous wealth disparity between the top 1% and the rest of America is an unsustainable economic and social injustice. We are committed to an economic recovery that employs all those willing and able, that houses all those needing shelter, and that imposes the cost based on the ability to pay.

Equal Rights Amendment

The ERA 3 State Strategy Issue Team is dedicated to ratifying the ERA in the timeliest manner possible—to finish what Dr. Alice Paul started 90 years ago. Our strategy is two-fold—removing the ERA ratification deadline on the national level by Educating Congress to support Joint Resolutions SJRES15 and HJRS113 while simultaneously organizing in targeted un-ratified states to gain the 3 additional required to make the ERA the 28th Amendment of the United States Constitution.
