On the 2-year anniversary of the final ratifying state for the Equal Rights Amendment - Virginia - we're rallying in Washington, D.C. on January 27th for a more just future for ALL!
January 27, 2022 is the date the Equal Rights Amendment should be taking effect across the country, the date it's suppose to be added to the Constitution.
While the Constitution doesn't put any time limit on states ratifying an amendment — the 27th Amendment took more than 200 years to become a reality — Congress put a time limit on ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in the preamble to this amendment which supposedly timed out in 1982.
But how can human rights of equality ever expire? We're rallying to speak out: There's no time limit on equal rights!
Join Gloria Steinem, Alyssa Milano, and all supporters of equality in refusing to shut up until the Equal Rights Amendment is no longer held up!

The Equal Rights Amendment States:

Section 2: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.”

ERA Coalition, Advocates for Women’s Equality File Amicus Brief in Case to Force Recognition of Equal Rights Amendment
On January 10, 2022, the ERA Coalition and advocates from 52 organizations filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in the case filed by the Attorneys General of the last three states to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment –– Nevada, Illinois, and Virginia –– to force U.S. Archivist David S. Ferriero to publish the ERA to the U.S. Constitution.
The Court previously dismissed the case for supposed lack of jurisdiction.
You can read the full amicus brief online here, prepared by Linda Coberly, chair of the ERA Coalition Legal Task Force.
