Women are not protected by the U.S. Constitution. Help us change that!
We've made our Equal Rights Amendment Postcards downloadable!
You can send these postcards yourself or better yet, host a virtual postcard writing party with your friends!
1. Choose the postcard you want to print and download the PDF
2. Print the postcard pages, front and back. The front of the postcard should be on one side of the paper and the back on the other side.
3. Use card stock or heavy weight paper, if you can. If you do not have access to a printer feel free to use your own stationery or makeshift postcard.
4. Here is some template language and the information for each state's senators, with the ERA holdouts at the top.
5. Check out these examples:
6. Stamp it and put it in the mail!
7. Pat yourself on the back for taking action to enshrine women’s equality in the U.S. Constitution.
Other things you can do to support the ERA:
Email your Senator and call them too!
Donate to support our ERA ratification efforts.
There are many legal hurdles to overcome before the ratification process is complete. We're working on the state and federal level to ensure that the ERA is ratified and becomes part of the U.S. Constitution.
Educate yourself: Learn more about the ERA and why we need it. Start by reading Equality Now's ERA Explainer. Listen to the Ordinary Equality Podcast hosted by Kate Kelly and produced by Wonder Media Network.
Educate others: Let others in your community know that women are still not protected under our constitution. Download this Action Sheet to share. Talk about it on social media, let your friends, family and neighbors know that the ERA is close to ratification! Use the hashtags #ERANow and #RatifyERA
Act nationally: Join the national ERA Coalition. This is also a good way to connect to others doing work in your state.
Act locally: Although we've reached the 38 state threshold, it will be easier to convince Congress to enshrine this amendment in the U.S. Constitution if the remaining 12 states ratify as well. If you live in one of the 12 states that have yet to ratify the ERA, you can get connected to local activists and support the ratification push in your state. You can also contact your state representatives and tell them that you want them to vote for the ratification of the ERA in your state!
