What can I do to help get the ERA published?
One way is to educate others about the importance of the ERA and its implications for gender equality and legal equity can help build support. Another is by staying informed about the status of the ERA and participating in advocacy efforts, such as writing letters to the editor and your representatives or participating in rallies and marches, can also help push for its publication.

Click on the "Biden Publish ERA" button for more information or read on to learn more about the Inside Out - Publish the ERA Project.

Did you know? "96% of Americans believe that men and women are equal but over 85% believe this equality is already explicit in our Constitution. It is not.  Informing the public of this legal injustice and fixing it is critical to ending the discrimination and rollbacks of our rights, presently increasing every day.
