States in green are where ERA stories were published!

Hello everyone, 

Thank you for joining us once again! We want to kick off with some exciting news on the Advocacy Committee front: We have t-shirts! You can get your official Equal Rights Amendment t-shirt now and have it delivered to your door in time for ERA Day on June 30. We couldn't be more excited to be getting these products out to you and spread the message of the Equal Rights Amendment. Click here to order your shirt.

Please note that we will not have a newsletter next week, as our newsletter staff will be out of the area and unable to monitor news updates full-time. We will, however, be monitoring all ERA Day content and this email address, so don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Now onto the news!
