What a day! By now you know that earlier today (January 15), the ERA passed both houses in the Virginia legislature! Thank you for all of the work you have done to pass the ERA here in Illinois in 2018! The momentum worked! The 2018 elections worked!
I’m thinking of all the activists here in Illinois who worked for the ERA for DECADES who are no longer with us. There are so many. The dreams that were dashed here in Springfield in 1982 are finally being realized.
The ERA will now likely head to the courts
But we can’t stop, there’s more to do.
The IL NOW State Council will meet by phone on Saturday, February 1 at 12 Noon. If interested in participating, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
