Please call your three state legislators, senator and two representatives. Ask them to support the Equal Rights Amendment and tell them why – a personal story is best. If you don’t know who your state legislators are, go to www.azleg.gov/findmylegislator- put in your address and it will tell you who your three state legislators are and how to contact them. Or you can call 855-733-7478.
Join us this Friday, January 18th, at the State Capitol from 10am-11am to take part in the ERA Forum, where a bi-partisan group of legislators and community leaders will be discussing the importance of the ERA and why it's long overdue.
