  1. An Ally or Leader in the ERA Coalition as well as a partner in ERA Action, and on our own, National Equal Rights Amendment Alliance, 501c3, is happy to learn about you and your passion.

    We share it.

    Else, as 82 year-old founder-president, we might have stalled out somewhere in the hard, uphill battle ERA has seemed to us for going on now 17 nonstop Years, endlessly, now only 12/7, for free, for all, if it were not for passion. Though sometimes it seems more like obsession as we forge on so long without support, as we were among the first few states to “get serious” about passing the Equal Rights Amendment.

    We think we’ve done a pretty good job, as few of the southeastern state legislatures remain unaware of ERA and us. We give our “elevator speeches” everywhere, and our real speeches to legislatures in all counties in some states every Fall. We lobby endlessly at state capitols and US Congress. We answer every Letter to the Editor in the nation with news of the ERA!

    One of our members (among the 300 000) actually walked solo Across the USA from San Francisco bridge to the DC Capitol, all to publicize the Equal Rights Amendment and the dire need for Sex Discrimination to become a violation of the US Constitution. It covers all aspects of what’s called “Women’s Issues”. Actually they are Everyone’s issues as we are all in this together, male and female. Just that we females take the brunt of Sex Discrimination.

    In short, we are just emailing because we are glad to get to know you, and so to introduce ourselves as the nonpartisan, nonsexist, nonprofit, grassroots organization that we are.

    We don’t do this tough work for $$, status, nor power.
    We do it because we CARE.
