We have some incredibly urgent legislature coming up today, and if you have any contacts in NC (or other states that haven passed the ERA, including Virginia) please encourage them to begin engaging with all social groups one may be connected with, along with new ones, for instance; judges, lawyers and legal associations or schools from elementary to university along with the school board and professors suggesting it be a focus of the curriculum! Take on what matters in places you already are because this affects all of us. Passing the ERA is imperative and we can’t do it alone, however we can pass this together!
The ERA is not only an issue for women…It will benefit our families, men, children, the entire financial structure of our country, showing the pioneering energy of America, with a ripple effect across the globe! Our children will inherit a better world.
CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS TODAY!
On Valentine’s Day, February 14, (TODAY) the Equal Rights Amendment will be introduced in both houses of the NC General Assembly.
Chief sponsors Sen. Floyd McKissick and Rep. Carla Cunningham will speak on the legislation at 2:30 pm in the legislative press conference room. Leaders of the ERA-NC Alliance will also speak at the news conference.
Essentially, we have two days from the time of introduction to gather co-sponsors for the bill. It then gets sent to a committee. There’s not a number of co-sponsors required for it to go to committee. Yet, the more co-sponsors there are, the better — it carries more power. After the 2-day window, it is good to continue approaching representatives as it makes its way through the committee and on to vote. So please call your own House and Senate members today and urge them to cosponsor this ERA legislation. In 2015 one-third of the House members signed on. Let’s top that this time, and push the ERA to victory in 2017!
please forward the email and the attachments to their friends all around The State ASAP to contact their Reps (Bullet item #2 on attached postcard.)
Base talking points:
I believe in telling my Reps that :I am committed to support only elected reps. & candidates who support The ERA.
Please send out far and wide to your friends & family state-wide ( NOT just that they do this, also that they ask all to do so as well)
My friend Amanda Krauss is on the ground in North Carolina – and open for contact – should anyone need help in this process. Everyone is busy and I we all need help sometimes to keep things simple and stand up for what we believe!
Her contact information:
Ratify ERA-NC Asheville
IF their Reps. do no get on as co-sponsors they should all be pushing to get them to vote for the ERA when the legislation is before them. And, to let them know that all eyes are on their votes.
The legislation does not yet have a bill number, we don’t know which committee it will go to or if it will be tacked onto other legs., we will follow closely and report to all as soon as we know (or if someone else wants to watch closely and report to us that would be fantastic!
LET’S RATIFY THE ERA!
Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
To find your lawmakers’ contact information, go to the legislative website: http://ncleg.net
Included here are some helpful tools to help you and your contacts with state legislators about cosponsoring the ERA. Including a chart, put together by Ann Von Brock, listing all the legislators, whether they cosponsored the ERA in 2015, and their responses (if any) to our candidate survey.Post Card Even if your legislator(s) previously cosponsored and said yes to our survey, please do contact them right away. You can thank them for past support and/or pledges of support. But they must hear from many constituents anyway, so that they know how important this issue is. http://www.ratifyera-nc.org/

…. On Thursday, January 19th, the artist, activist, and once and future muse, Natalie White was found guilty on charges of “defacing public or private property” for spray-painting “ERA NOW” in large red letters on the steps of The Capitol Building, an offense she originally committed back in July, 2016. White will have to pay a $50 fine and is ordered to stay away from the Capitol for six months unless she plans to meet with legislators, lawmakers or other congress people in an effort to finally pass the Equal Rights Amendment. White represented herself in court and personally negotiated this visitation caveat as well as a reduced fine after prosecutors recommended a heftier sentence. White, who surely brought a cinematic Warholian flare to the proceedings, did receive prior council from the famed D.C. first amendment attorney Mark Goldstone and the celebrated civil rights attorney Ron Kuby. Her friends and fellow women’s rights activists, Lizzy Jagger, daughter of Mick and Jerry Hall, and Academy Award winning actress Patricia Arquette were on hand to witness exchanges such as this:

Patricia Arquette, Kamala Lopez, Elizabeth Jagger, Sarabeth Stroller & I speak briefly on why it is important, after a nearly 230 year journey, to ratify the constitution to include the Equal Rights Amendment – for all Americans.

The election results teach us that democracy is not granted. It is not on auto pilot. Democracy requires we the people be involved in every single aspect from local through the national arena. This means to educate every citizen on the laws. We have an opportunity to show the next generation what it means to work and gain our freedoms in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. Is this not what this country is born for, is this not what the last few hundred years of fighting for equality for all men, women and children in this country (and globally – if we protect other countries we protect ourselves) have taught us?! #OnWard #KeepFighting #NatalieWhiteForEqualRights #Democracy
Shown above is my sculpture “Sisters of Liberty”. It was placed at the Washington Mall the day before the election.
It reminds me we have an obligation to all men and women of this country, as citizens of a democracy, to use our voices. All people deserve a fair democracy. We need to work with government to create transparency, improving the laws, and showing the world the great country that is the United States of America.
The Equal Rights Amendment is a piece of legislature that will help to protect against many forms of devastating and undermining prejudices in society. The passing of it will help not only women, men, the LBGT community, minorities, and therefore every person in our society by extension.
Let’s get the Equal Rights Amendment passed and work toward a more balanced country, sending a sign of unity and capable democracy, influencing the world in a positive way.
I am Natalie White (Artist/Activist/Feminist/VOICE). #Onward

Jeannette Rankin was the first woman to serve in the U.S. Congress. She helped pass the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote, and was a committed pacifist.
My woman of inspiration for the week. I salute Rankin, and strongly advocate for women in the justice system. It is women such as Rankin that have allowed me, and illustrious women such as Patricia Arquette and Jessica Neuwirth, to pick up the fight for Equal Rights In the United States of America, for all women, men & children. #EqualMeansEqual #MarchForERA.
Please have a look at Rankin’s Biography here, and inspire ourselves and all of our children to engage in pacifism as a form of moving government.
The pacifist takes a stand… http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/jeanette-rankin-casts-sole-vote-against-wwii

Alexis Arquette was born on July 28, 1969 in Los Angeles, California, USA as Robert Arquette. She is known for her work on Pulp Fiction (1994), The Wedding Singer (1998) and Bride of Chucky (1998).
According to her family the actress and activist “fiercely lived her reality in a world where it is dangerous to be a trans person – a world largely unready to accept differences among human beings, and where there is still the ugliness of violence and hostility towards people that we may not understand. … We learned what real bravery is through watching her journey of living as a trans woman. We came to discover the one truth – that love is everything.”
She died on September 11, 2016 in Los Angeles. Sending Prayers to her family.

To quote the amazing Patricia Arquette: “Badass Artist and Activist Natalie White @marchforERA was arrested for painting ERA NOW on Capitol steps#EqualRights” @PattyArquette
My surrender was arranged for midnight Thursday night\friday morning.
I showed up with my friends Frank and Sophie. We went from my boyfriends house to the Capitol Police Station at 119 D street northeast in a lyft. My boyfriend couldn’t couldn’t go because he has a stay away order from the Capitol because he poured money on congress when they were voting on the dark bill. We drove past the constitution center in DC where we read Susan B. Anothony’s quote on a huge banner hanging outside the constitution center reading, “We shall some day be heeded, and when we shall have our amendment to the Constitution of the United States, everybody will think it was always so.”
The prosecutor wanted to get a stay away order on me that I would be able to go to any government building but i just got a stay away order from the Capitol Building. I have to call once a week to tell them that I won’t be running away and I have to show up for arraignment September 26th at the courthouse in DC.
The way I see it, that building is where the laws are changed. It’s where we have a do nothing congress. Every year since 1982 when the ERA failed, it has been reintroduced into congress- and they have yet to vote on it. Our constitution says “We the people of the United States”. Aren’t I one of those people?
