Your ERA Toolkit
Are you ready to help get the ERA ratified? Here’s just a few things you can do.
Welcome to your ERA Toolkit! The toolkit is full of a variety of tools to help you become knowledgeable about the Equal Rights Amendment – its history and current efforts toward ratification —and help others become involved in the important efforts to ensure constitutionally protected equality for women and men.
How can you be an ERA Advocate?
There are a great many ways that you can become an advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment! Here is a brief list:

The ERA Toolkit and all its parts have been researched, developed, and designed by members of the all-volunteer Advocacy Committee of the Alice Paul Institute. This dynamic group of individuals are dedicated to the ratification the the ERA, and to advocating for gender equality.
Call your Elected Officials!
Do you live in a state that hasn’t ratified the ERA yet? Call your senators today! Use this script as a starting point. Remember to be polite to the aids answering the phone (they are often unpaid college interns):
U.S. Capital Switchboard:
Hi! My name is [your name] and I am a constituent of [name of elected official] from [your county]. I wanted to know [official’s name] position on the Equal Rights Amendment.
If the elected official DOES support the Equal Rights Amendment:
Great! Would she/he be willing to bring this issue to the floor to get [your state] to ratify?
If the elected DOES NOT support the Equal Rights Amendment:
That’s unfortunate. The ERA would provide lasting constitutional equality to both women and men in the eyes of the law. Women are a large voting block for [your state]. I ask that [official’s last name] reconsider her/his position.
