States in green are where the ERA was in the news.

Hello all,

Virginia continues to stay laser-focused on the Equal Rights Amendment, as their November election is just one month away. Many of the local politicians are supporting the Equal Rights Amendment in their campaigns, and our friends at VA Ratify ERA are looking for all the support they can get in this last month. 

The National Museum of American Jewish History-- just a stone's throw from our home at the Alice Paul Institute-- is debuting their Ruth Bader Ginsburg exhibit, 'Notorious RBG.' Find out more about the exhibit here
