Today’s the day! Arizona’s 38 Miles for the Equal Rights Amendment begins today. I’ll see the marchers today at the noon press conference. Establishment forces are trying to silence ERA supporters at the Capitol. It’s time for us to stand up and fight for our rights.
Arizona could make history in the coming weeks as the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. The ERA Task Force AZ has brought together many diverse groups of women and men to push Arizona into the history books.
The ERA Task Force AZ is organizing a 38-mile, three-day march in Phoenix. Here are the basics for all three days. Come if you can. Wear white and good walking shoes!!!
In addition, contact your Legislators— especially if you are represented by a Republican– about your support for the ERA. Tell them it’s time that American women earned equal pay for equal work and had equal protection under the law. A few powerful Republican men have been stopping the ERA in some states, including Arizona. It’s time to tell them, “Enough is enough. The women of Arizona demand and deserve equality.”
Let’s do this!!!!!
Monday March 11, 2019: We’ll meet and park at Phoenix First Church UCC 1407 N 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004 at 10:30am and walk to the Capitol for a noon press conference.
