Given the endangered state of equality with the prospect of a 6-3 conservative leaning Supreme Court, what can we be sure of? We here at the ERA Coalition/Fund for Women's Equality say we can be sure we need the ERA more than ever.

Please join us as we discuss the status of rights and protections for the diverse LGBTQIA+ community --and what the ERA will do to ensure them.

The Panelists are:

- Senator Pat Spearman, representing Nevada's first district

- Andrea Shorter, Commissioner of the S.F. Department of Women

ABOUT: ERA Coalition & the Fund for Women's Equality

Goal: Achieve full and final ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment
to the U. S. Constitution

The U.S. Constitution does not guarantee equal rights. We are working to ratify the #EqualRightsAmendment which will ensure an #EqualFuture #ERANow.

The Fund for Women’s Equality and ERA Coalition are independent, sister organizations. The organizations were formed simultaneously and conduct complimentary work to promote fair and equal treatment for women and girls in the United States.

While the effort to amend the constitution to include sex equality began many decades ago, our renewed efforts are centered on Black, Indigenous and Women of Color, gender-nonconforming and transgender women and girls, and nonbinary people– those who are most impacted by systemic inequities.
