CWA’s Chief Operating Officer and State Director, Toni DeLancey, spoke to ABC 13 concerning the efforts to pass the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in Virginia. Read the article and watch the video here.
If Virginia passes the ERA, it will become the 38th state to pass the amendment, the threshold number of states needed to ratify the amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However, the deadline to ratify the amendment ended decades ago, and three states (AL, LA, SD) have filed a lawsuit to prevent the ERA from illegally being added to the U.S. Constitution as stated in this CWA press release.
Help us stop the ERA in Virginia by joining us on Wednesday, January 8, for the Celebrate Womanhood, Do Not ERAse it rally/lobby day in Richmond.
