File a witness slip in favor of SJRCA 4 by Wednesday, May 16th

Equality of rights under the law shall not be abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. 

This week, an Illinois House Committee will consider whether the State of Illinois will ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. You can make your voice heard to speak out in favor of the very simple, very powerful words above. 

The ERA is necessary now. Sex discrimination is not a thing of the past, and only the adoption of a strong Equal Rights Amendment provides courts at the state and federal level with a clear standard for striking back against such treatment of women. 

Together, we can pass the ERA in Illinois and move both our state and the nation forward.
