Social Media and Issues Survey

 

Since we’re gathering this weekend, we thought we’d use this moment to ask you:

How do you want to engage with us? What issues are most important to you? What do you think about our social media strategies?

This survey takes about 5 minutes to fill out. Please, let us know what you’re thinking!

The 1st Woman President Needs Equal Rights!!!

Dear Virginia,

Happy ERA Monday, and Happy Presidents Day!! It’s a double day, and I have a double request of you.

First: Del. Mark Cole holds an open house at his office tomorrow, Feb. 17. Activists will be present as the weather allows,
but snow can’t stop email, or phone calls!!!

Click here for a post with a great email for Chair Cole and his contact information. Tell him the ERA MUST BE PUT ON THE DOCKET and moved into the full Privileges and Elections Committee.

Please, send the same email to Speaker Howell.

This committee is heavily resistant. We must push hard this week! On the same post, you can contact the whole committee.

When pressed, their objections tend to crumble down to traditional and fundamentalist forms of sexism. Show them that’s the only reason they could refuse us our rights.

Feel some tweetage coming on? Yeah, me too.

To tweet the House: @VaHouse.
To tweet the House GOP: @vahousegop.
To tweet the Hosue Dems: @VAHouseDems.

1st Woman #POTUS deserves full #civilrights, #RatifyERA, SJ 216 on the P&E docket!!

(*)   (*)   (*)

Second, in honor of Presidents Day, I ask you for one more action.

The fundamental political difference between the first woman president and all the men before her is that she might not enjoy fully protected civil rights under the Constitution she will swear to defend and protect.

Clinton? Warren? … Clinton/Warren?
Warren/Clinton? President Seal
Who knows.

This week, let’s focus on the Senate.

Send them this email:
Email Page for Senator Warner
Email Page for Senator Kaine
 
 
Subject: Please Support Women’s Civil Rights, Lift the Deadline on Ratification

Dear Honorable Senator _______,

You serve with women who swear to protect and defend the Constitution, but are not fully protected by it. Our nation’s daughters have long risked their lives in our wars, but are not yet fully protected by that Constitution.

On this Presidents Day, consider: our next president could well be a woman — who still may not be fully invested with the civil rights enshrined in our laws.

This is an inconsistency that should not stand for one more year. This March when Senator Cardin offers a new resolution, please sign on to support it and then encourage your colleagues to do so — especially friendlier Republicans. Cardin aims for vigorous bi-partisan support.

Ratification of Equal Rights Amendment would accomplish one civil goal: it would mend the patchwork of laws that currently tack together the rag doll of women’s citizenship.

I urge you to join which would remove the historically aberrant and wholly arbitrary deadline on ratification.

Justices Scalia and Ginsberg agree on one thing: the 14th Amendment clearly applies only to “male citizens” and “male inhabitants” of the Republic. What “rights” women do have are only supported by laws and statutes — all of which can change given a hostile political wind.

Our nation’s women are caught in a stalemate. States wait for a signal from Congress, Congress for a signal from the states. Be first, lead, honor the nation’s women with fully established civil rights. Assure us that a future female president will not be so civilly vulneralby as women are today. Send the signal — it’s time for ratification. Lift the deadline.

Let the Constitution protect and defend our women as our women do the Constitution.

With my lasting gratitude for your service to our state and the nation,
Your Name
City, State

Progress (partial) for Women over Guns and Stalkers

** When they know we’re looking, we win!! ** When they think we’re not looking, they’re protect a gun more than a woman.

“In a dramatic turn of events, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee voted 10-4 today to approve SB 943, a bill that would prohibit those convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence, sexual battery, and stalking from purchasing and possessing firearms. The vote comes just two days after the committee initially rejected SB 943 following a controversial hearing in which Chairman Tommy Norment (R-3rd) appeared to announce the bill had been approved. The bill was later listed as defeated by a 10-5 vote in Virginia’s Legislative Information System.”

Let’s Keep the Momentum Up! — Legislation Update

It’s exciting to report some momentum in our women’s agenda. Women’s voices – and women’s votes – may be getting through to more elected officials. Please continue to contact them – there’s more to do (read on).  

Yesterday was a good day for Virginia women. A bill to restrict access to guns for those convicted of domestic violence (Senate Bill 943, patroned by Senator Barbara Favola) and another bill to expand the anti-stalking statute (Senate Bill 1297, patroned by Senator Don McEachin) passed a Senate committee.  

But, as I said, there’s more to do. A companion gun bill (introduced by Delegate Kathleen Murphy, whom NOW members worked to elect) will be heard tomorrow (Friday) in House Militia, Police, and Public Safety Subcommittee #1. It needs immediate calls. The bill (House Bill 2085) would restrict possession of guns by those convicted of domestic abuse, stalking, sexual battery, and other violent misdemeanors.

Please call and email these delegates and ask them to vote YES on HB2085 to keep guns away from domestic abusers: 

Delegate Thomas Wright  (804) 698-1061       DelTWright@house.virginia.gov

Delegate Todd Gilbert       (804) 698-1015      DelTGilbert@house.virginia.gov

Delegate Michael Webert (804) 698-1018       DelMWebert@house.virginia.gov

Delegate Matthew Fariss  (804) 698-1059      DelMFariss@house.virginia.gov 

Delegate Rosalyn Tyler     (804) 698-1075      DelRTyler@house.virginia.gov

There’s also a good anti-stalking bill in the House of Delegates, patroned by Jackson Miller (HB1453). We’ve contacted Delegate Miller about our support for the bill; it should be heard tomorrow.

More great news: The ERA resolution passed the Senate Privileges and Elections Committee and will go to the Senate floor. NOW and our allies in the Women’s Equality Coalition continue to work hard to pass the ERA. Watch Virginia ERA Network for updates.

Bad news: An abortion ban bill has been introduced by Delegate Dave LaRock. The bill, HB2321, would unconstitutionally ban all abortions after 20 weeks. Elections matter! We worked hard to defeat Tea Partier LaRock. All 100 delegate seats and all 40 senate seats are up this November. Our Virginia NOW Political Action Committee (PAC) will again be working hard for candidates who support women and equality.  Stay tuned – we need your support!  

Also

Contact Board of Health
We have until February 11 to submit comments supporting the amended
TRAP regulations for women’s health centers.
Submit your comment today.
Thank you for all you do every day for women and girls.

Legislative Update — Why and How to Make Virginia a Safer Place to Live

Consider the facts:

  • Murdered UVA student Hannah Graham might be alive if Virginia had stricter laws about reporting campus sexual assaults. The man charged with her abduction previously was accused of rape while a student at Liberty University and again later at Christopher Newport University. Authorities investigated the charges by authorities, but no charges were filed.
  • Gun and domestic violence are a lethal combination. Nationally, there are nearly 500 domestic gun violence deaths each year – more than twice the number of servicewomen killed since the Korean War.

What can we do to make Virginia safer for women? Two bills are before the General Assembly that could help prevent domestic violence gun murders and reduce campus sexual assaults. They are a bill on removing guns from convicted abusers and a bill on reporting campus sexual assault. It’s too soon to say if real progress will be made on either but some Republicans and most Democrats are showing interest–perhaps recognizing the importance of the women’s vote.

Want to do something about domestic violence and campus sexual assault? Meet with legislators during the Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance advocacy day Wednesday, January 28. Let high school and college students know about this opportunity to make a difference! Sign up here. 

Read on and let’s get to work! Thank you for all you do every day for equality, 

Marj Signer, VA NOW Legislative V-P

Guns and Domestic Violence: Legislation to prevent gun violence is difficult to pass (in fact, the trend is the reverse – the sensible law limiting handgun purchases to one a month was overturned by then-Gov. McDonnell) but there is a possibility of getting Republican support for a bill that would remove guns from those convicted of certain domestic violence misdemeanors – only for a limited period of time but that’s better than nothing.
Senator Barbara Favola’s bill – SB943 – would prohibit a person who has been convicted of misdemeanor stalking, assault and battery of a family or household member, or sexual battery from possessing or transporting a firearm. To placate those fearful of a criminal losing unfettered access to his guns, her bill includes a process for reinstating his right to possess or transport a firearm. Most Virginia Republicans (and a few Democrats) either want to make guns more accessible or oppose restrictions but limiting convicted abusers’ access to guns may be one thing that they will support.

Campus Sexual Assault: Mostly in response to the shock over the murder of Hannah Graham, legislators are considering steps to improve how campus assaults are handled. They held a two-hour committee hearing Friday afternoon to try to sort out the complex issues involved in reporting campus sexual assault.

Virginia NOW is backing HB1343, Democratic Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn’s bill, which would require that campus police forces and law-enforcement agencies notify the local Commonwealth’s attorney of any investigation involving felony criminal sexual assault on campus within 48 hours of beginning the investigation. This is a reasonable bill that would protect victims’ options about reporting while providing information to non-campus authorities. For full information, read Legislators discuss reporting requirements on sexual violence on campuses (The News and Advance), which is also excerpted below.

In other news, the Senate Republicans killed off this year’s minimum wage increase request (to increase the floor to $10.10 an hour over the next two-and-a-half years). This bill was a priority for VA NOW and for the new Women’s Equality Coalition because women make up a majority of low-wage workers in Virginia and it’s essential to close the pay gap and promote economic security. More states are moving to increase the minimum wage, though: 29 states and the District of Columbia have minimums above the federal floor, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Maybe Virginia will also decide to enter the 21st Century but not this year.

Legislators discuss reporting requirements on sexual violence on campuses 

By Alicia Petska | Friday, January 16, 2015, The News and Advance)

Legislators tried to untangle a complex web of federal laws governing colleges and reports of sexual violence Friday as they prepare to consider a stack of bills on the issue.College representatives were critical of proposals to create a mandatory reporting requirement that would compel them to report assaults to local prosecutors.

Not all victims want to file a criminal complaint and that should be respected, officials said.

“Survivors need to have voices, choices and control over what happens in their case,” said Christine Dennis Smith, who oversees counseling at the Virginia Tech Women’s Center.

Mandatory reporting may further traumatize a victim and deter others from seeking help, said representatives ranging from campus police to Title IX coordinators. Title IX is a federal law that, in part, requires colleges to conduct an administrative investigation of sexual assault reports.

Multiple bills dealing with sexual violence on campuses have been filed in the wake of growing public concern and last year’s killing of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. The man charged with her abduction, 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., also faces charges on a 2005 assault in Northern Virginia. He previously was accused of rape while a student at Liberty University and again later at Christopher Newport University. Those cases were investigated by authorities, but no charges were filed….

On Friday, state delegates convened a joint session of the House Courts of Justice and House Education committees and asked to hear from those who could help them better understand the current reporting process and legal standards under Title IX and the federal Clery Act. Several lawmakers acknowledged the importance of honoring a victim’s wishes, but said they felt an obligation to protect others from serial predators. That leaves them grappling with the question of how to address those sometimes opposing interests.

“The issue is about balancing individual autonomy and control versus a community’s interest in putting bad guys in jail,” said House Minority Leader David Toscano, D-Charlottesville.

“When we start talking about autonomy and a person’s ability to maintain control over whether or not something gets reported, you’re potentially putting other people, other women, at risk by not reporting somebody who might do it again.”

…Cynthia Micklem, an assistant commonwealth’s attorney in Richmond, said mandatory reporting doesn’t have to mean pushing a reluctant victim into a criminal case. “A well-informed and trained office is going to talk to the victim and allow the victim to still make decisions,” she said. “What mandatory reporting can do is notify law enforcement, someone outside the university, of what is occurring. Because right now, we have no way of knowing who these perpetrators are” even in cases of repeat offenders…..

Several lawmakers expressed interest in drafting a standardized script for college officials to ensure all victims are provided the same information and are adequately informed of their rights. … When some suggested it’d be difficult to write a script in time for the current General Assembly session, which ends in February, Del. Robert Bell, R-Charlottesville, said flatly, “We are going to write a script. The script will be written in two weeks. We would love to have your guidance, but something is going to happen.”

Come to Richmond for an up-close look at the legislative process. The League of Women Voters (LWV) Legislative Roundtable is held at 8:30 a.m. every Wednesday morning at the General Assembly Building and is an opportunity to hear legislators and advocacy organizations. Lobby days are held by individual organizations and coalitions and include:
  • The ERA coalition, 9:30 am Wednesday, January 21, directly after the LWV roundtable. Contact VA NOWPresident Diana Egozcue.
  • The Pro-Choice Coalition Day of Action, in Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads and Richmond, January 22, the Roe v. Wade anniversary. RSVP here.
  • The Health Care for All Virginians Coalition, January 28.This coalition advocates for expanding Medicaid for low-income Virginians.
  • The Sexual and Domestic Violence Action  Alliance advocacy day is Wednesday, January 28. Sign up here. 
  • VA NOW and League of Women Voters Women’s Lobby Day , Wednesday, February 4. Contact Marj at NOW for more information.

Please mention the following talking points:

1. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution, often cited as a reason not to pass the ERA because it provides equality, thus making the ERA no longer necessary (and one that Virginian legislators often point to), is not valid for several reasons: Section 2 of the 14th Amendment specifically includes the wording male citizen and male inhabitant 3 times and is very gender specific in its applicability to males; if it was intended to cover females, then the 19th Amendment would not have been necessary to give females the right to vote, for the 14th Amendment did not give females that right.

2. When dealing with Howell and Cole (chair of PandE), because they want Congress to act first before considering it at the state level, point out that this creates a Catch 22 log jam that leaves women’s equality in legal purgatory. While many in the U.S. Congress and Senate (including Warner and Kaine) have signed onto bills calling for removal of the ratification deadline imposed in 1982, others feel a freshly ratified state is needed before taking action. Virginia would be a beacon for the nation if we took leadership on this important bipartisan, economic, and civil rights issue.

Thank you!

And thanks to Vicki Yeroian and Richmond NOW in Virginia for the quick word!!! 

Reproductive Justice is Social Justice

Congressional GOP to bring a vote on a 20-Week Abortion Ban,
this Thursday (Jan 22), the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Please read, and contact your representative.

We know Senator Hyde of the Hyde Amendment was just comfortable the knowledge that his restriction on federal funding for abortion in Medicaid would mostly affect poor women and poor women of color. He knew darn well he couldn’t stop rich women from exerting control over their own bodies, their reproductive, creative, and working lives.

And since then, we have seen reduction after cut in services, programs, and education that would support women who are raising children. On top of this, an average pay gap (77/100) that results in millions of missing dollars in women’s incomes over their lifetimes (affecting not only base income, but 410(k) contributions, and Social Security benefits as well), decades of flat salaries and income for all American workers, and an increasing slide of available jobs into the never-enough of minimum wage work.

Now, our fresh new conservative Congress wants to use the
anniversary of Roe v. Wade to introduce a 20-week abortion ban.

As readers of this blog likely know, such a prohibition would make a timely abortion nearly impossible for huge numbers of women — for reasons too many to rehearse her but which include the often delayed manner in which women discover they’re pregnant, the many difficulties in accessing care in many states (TRAP regulations, lack of facilities, ….) — the whole point of this legislation is to make the deadline so short and the path to exercising one’s own conscience so difficult that women who don’t want a (another) child will wind up having one anyway. Many of us have seen the statistical maps. Women of all kinds who live in GOP controlled states and counties have less access to health care, and specifically to reproductive health care — resulting, more direly, in increased mortality rates for women and mothers. This disadvantage increases as those counties get either poorer or more ethnically mixed, thanks to the confluence of forces I describe above.

So, this 20-week ban effectively doubles-down
on the Hyde Amendment’s nefarious effects.

Of course, these anti-choice citizens and politicians are not pro-child. They are not organizing en masse to adopt or otherwise care for these children. The child is not the point. Controlling/punishing the woman is. Katha Pollitt’s Pro does a marvelous job elaborating the evidence of this ultimate goal. (Please buy it through one of these fine independent or feminist bookstores.)

So, we have a political and economic climate that is hostile to women’s freedom and pursuit of happiness on a number of levels. It’s even a climate that makes raising healthy, educated, productive citizens really damn hard. Expand the concept of reproductive justice to include creating conditions that support women who want to be mothers — no matter their race or class — and we find ourselves at an intersection vital to social justice generally.

Women of color have understood and organized their reproductive justice activism around this intersection for a long time now. They gone in this direction partly because their relationship to a white-dominated state complicates the history of reproduction for women of color in some horrifying ways all of which result (still) in denying women control over their own fates and the well-being of their children. (The link I offer here is a gentle version of this history.) We’re still sterilizing women against their will in prisons in the US, we’re still taking Native American children from their families for the flimsiest of reasons.

I suggest we bring this fuller and
more nuanced understanding of choice and justice
to the women of the Congressional GOP and their colleagues.

Congresswoman Renee Elmers (R-NC), and a small cohort of GOP women, are rebelling against this ban on the grounds that it’s a bad PR move and will (further) alienate young women (all women) from the GOP.

I suggest that we both support Rep. Elmers, and educate her more broadly on the many dimensions of reproductive justice. These bans create only harm. They have no positive effect on the society, the economy, or the people directly affected by them. Even the “science” used to justify them is largely a sack of lies made out of false concern and overt racism and hatred of the disadvantaged.

To share this broader perspective with Rep. Elmers or your own representatives, please use this directory. It leads you to their websites, all their social media, their official emails — the whole kit and caboodle.

On this MLK Day, when we are remembering our lost warriors for social justice and still dreaming of the future in the beloved community, let’s make sure that women — all women — are free to help build that community, that polity, whether by being mothers, or by contributing their talents, energy, and intellect in a myriad of other — and vital — ways.

Push START on ERA in the Commonwealth

Push START on ERA in the Commonwealth.

Yes, I’m going to ask you for more during this holiday season. Your time, not your money.

Our legislative session is very short in 2015, and its coming soon. We must try to move the ERA to floor of the House of Delegates for a public vote.

The bill to ratify the ERA is buried in the Governance Committee where Delegates can vote not to bring it to the floor, but not suffer the consequences of that vote. Committee votes don’t get recorded

Through December and the session in Jan-Feb, I will send CC emails giving you the following:

  • Names, emails, Facebook pages, Twitters, and phone numbers for relevant federal and state representatives;
  • Suggested talking points/messages/tweets for your interactions;
  • Links and hashtags and all that jazz to help you get yourself and others connected to these efforts.
Our goal is to contact EVERY SINGLE MEMBER of the recalcitrant House of Delegates and US House of Representatives to demand ratification. In VA, to being the bill to the floor and vote in public. In Congress, to lift the arbitrary ratification deadline.

You’ll get a handful of names every week. Contact as many as you have time for — ideally 5 or 6. They will be from all districts. Members must hear from all Virginians — not just from their carefully drawn districts of like-minded voters — because this is a national issue. Members of our coalition partners will making contact as well — it will not be just us out there.

This “hear from all” approach is not conventional, I know.
But convention is obviously not working for us.

We need their attention and action. Business as usual simply has not and will get women into the Constitution. We’re feminists. We go way beyond convention, and we will do so now.

To join this action in VA, and get updates about work in other states too,please choose one of the sign-up options at the left. Both of those will get you the same updates, so just choose one. Emails/updates will come regularly.

I don’t want to bother all our contacts, every week, for the next few months. I know not all of you are interested in ratifying the ERA.

Lots of other issues also need work, and VA NOW wants to respect your interests and your time.

Just note that for the next few weeks, I will send these emails to most of our lists. They will all have the subject line “ERA Campaign.” I’m only doing that to give as many as possible the chance to catch one of these emails and sign-up for the dedicated list or blog updates.

I wish you and yours health, happiness, and equality in the new year!
