Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports campaigns by the Daily KOS (joined by Women's March National, Demand Progress, Campaign for Accountability, #VoterProChoice, Democrats.com, and the National Partnership for Women and Families), the National Organization for Women, Equality Now, and others.

We will send your letters to your Senators and ask them to support S.J. Res. 6, a joint resolution that removes the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. The House has already passed the resolution (H.J. Res. 79).

I strongly urge you to support S.J. Res. 6 and eliminate the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The ERA prohibits discrimination based on sex.

Congress passed the ERA in 1972 and attached an arbitrary deadline to it, something the Constitution does not require. Even after extending that deadline to 1982, the amendment fell three states short of ratification.

Recently, Nevada, Illinois, and Virginia ratified the amendment. Congress must eliminate the deadline to recognize those ratifications.

The House passed H.J. Res. 79 in February 2020. Now, it’s up to the Senate to remove the deadline.

We have been fighting for equal rights for women since the early 20th century. It’s time for the ERA. Please pass S.J. Res. 6.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
