Green states are where the ERA was in the news this past week.

Last week we witnessed the first Congressional Hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment in 36 years! You'll find a ton of press on the hearing under the National news section of our newsletter, but you can also watch the full hearing on C-SPAN. It is really amazing! Check it out.

Can you believe that our first-ever ERA DAY is only 2 months away? We’d love for you to join us on June 30 as we reclaim the date that the ERA failed to ratify! The event will be held at the Alice Paul Institute in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, and it will be full day of independent artisans, ERA expert speakers and celebrating the history of Equal Rights Amendment advocacy over the last 100 years. Tickets are available here

And! *We are still accepting applications for vendors for our craft and independent business fair. Apply for your spot now!*
