ERA Day is almost upon us! We are so excited to take back June 30 and celebrate the leaders who have fought and are fighting every day for the Equal Rights Amendment. For more information, please read this column from our Committee Member Jessica Laus in today's Burlington County Times. 

We hope you'll join us on June 30 at noon at the Alice Paul Institute. We'll have a full day of Equal Rights Amendment education and craft vendors, followed by an afternoon with Equal Means Equal, who will be hosting ERA Day's 80's Happy Hour. We'll have wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as food from The Fabulous Fig food truck. 

 The itinerary for the day is:

· 11am-12pm:  Vendor & Organization Set-Up

· 12pm:  Craft Fair Opens

· 12pm - 1pm:  Registration & Check-In

· 1pm - 3pm:  Panel Discussion, Q & A
