Virginia and the era

a summary of actions to take following the 9/15/19 meeting

  • The nation’s political attention is on the 2019 state legislative races in Virginia on November 5. To help ensure the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia and become the 38th state needed, they must elect at least 4 four more “equality champions” to put the Virginia legislature’s leadership in the hands of pro ERA lawmakers. Nevada can help make this happen!

  • Nevada NOW is adopting two candidates to support in this race. They are both ERA champions!

    • If you’re interested in phone banking for these Virginia candidates, please reach out to jeri@nevadanow.org. A NOW-hosted phone-banking event is in the works as well, so keep an eye out for that.
