The ERA is Back!

AZ ERA Task Force

Anissa Rasheta, a national organizer for Mormons for ERA who is pushing for ratification in her home state of Arizona, discusses the measure — the need for it, the status of the fight and the reception it is getting from today’s Latter-day Saints, young and old, male and female, leaders and laypersons.

Why Utah?

Suffragettes

Utah is home to many FIRSTS for women: FIRST woman to cast a U.S. ballot, FIRST female State senator, and home to FIRST suffragettes who helped get the 19th Amendment ratified.   Utah ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment would honor their memory and efforts for a more just and fair society.  Interestingly enough, Utah has had equal rights language built into it's state constitution since 1896.  What an opportunity for Utah's constitution to be a model for the rest of the country!

Why Now?

Race to Equality

2020 is the "Year of the Woman"!  It is the perfect opportunity to turn around the latest statistics that put Utah LAST among states in the union that support women's issues and equality.  Now more than ever, we need the equal rights amendment to be a constitutional anchor to provide strong legal protection against sexual discrimination in our country.

Utah has an opportunity to celebrate 150 years of Utah women in leadership by giving ALL people constitutional protection against sexual discrimination under the law. 

#utahERA2020vision

The ERA provides...

Constitution

Higher judicial standard of equal treatment for women and men.


Legal recourse when people experience sex discrimination.


Constitutional protection from future sex discrimination laws.


Protection from rollbacks of current supportive laws.


Blanket protections for ALL Americans, regardless of the state in which we live.


Constitutional value of women as full citizens under the law.
