Just Say ERA.

President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union Address Tuesday January 12, 2016–three years and a day after the launch of the successful White House ERA Petition.

Yet, despite nearly three years of waiting–the Grassroots ERA Advocates who worked tirelessly to meet the then 25,000 signature threshold in the 30 days required to trigger an official response from the Obama Administration have not heard President Obama say ERA even once! (33,107 signers from across the country and around the world added their names before the petition closed on August 12, 2013.)

Sex discrimination is NOT outlawed in the U.S. Constitution. This is an outrage and it’s time President Obama addresses this injustice directly.

The absence of this protection is at epidemic proportion across the country and is getting noticed by our world wide neighbors. Click here to read the 2015 United Nations working group report. The group of human rights experts found the condition of U.S. women deplorable and recommends the United States ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and hold true to the commitment made in 2010 and 2015 to ratify CEDAW (the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women).

Please Join us in Calling on President Obama to Lead on ratifying the ERA.
