Congratulations, America! On January 27th, 2020 the thirty-eighth state ratified the Equal Rights Amendment! But now the administration is blocking ERA from being added to the U.S. Constitution.
Despite our hard work, the present administration has NOT done the right thing for women and the ERA despite being in office for well over a hundred days.
Please join us in our Emergency Townhall on Saturday June 5th at 2pm pst/5pm est to discuss this urgent upcoming IN-PERSON PROTEST and SUSTAINED ACTION: The ERA Sentinel Project. The action will begin Thursday June 10th at 8am outside the U.S. Department of Justice on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
In this upcoming ERA Townhall, everyone will be visible and able to interact, make suggestions and share their ideas.
Please RSVP here for the Townhall and share widely: https://bit.ly/3uP6vbh
The goal of the ERA Sentinel Project is to be a constant, visible reminder to the Attorney General and the other attorneys working at the DOJ that justice is NOT being served and that they should do something about it.
The online sign up runs from June 10th to July 4th — for now.
We would like to ask you and your organization to commit to:
Please sign up to stand Sentinel for the ERA: https://bit.ly/3vT3nfV
Or Please Sponsor a Sentinel here:
Shifts are M-F 8am – 10am and 4pm – 6pm
Those working at the DOJ will see us when they come to work and again when they leave.
By the July 4th holiday we will probably know the outcome of the ERA case in Appeals court.
*If the Barr Memo has not been lifted and the ERA remains unpublished at that point, we will reassess the ERA Sentinel Project and decide whether we should continue or shift strategy.*
Equal Means Equal will keep you informed of the status of ratification in your state and what actions you can take locally to pass the ERA.
Let’s do this.

In 1776, our nation declared that all men are created equal and are endowed with inalienable rights, leaving women to fight for equal treatment under the law. This has been at the foundation of over 240 years of discriminatory attitudes and treatment of half the country’s population.
It’s time the Constitution acknowledged women’s rights as citizens of this country. The Equal Rights Amendment will set a precedent that guarantees equality, justice, and respect for all people under the law. Only when Equal Means Equal can we all meet our true potential.
