Hey, Utah! It's almost 2020, and women still don't have equal rights in the Constitution.
The UTAH ERA COALITION is an inclusive and bipartisan group of Utah citizens and local organizations, collaborating in support of Utah ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in 2020.
We are putting our best efforts into educating Utah citizens about the Equal Rights Amendment and its importance in providing a strong legal foundation for constitutional protection against sex discrimination. Only ONE MORE STATE is needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and we want Utah to be on the right side of history! #ratifyERAutah
GIVE TODAY and help us continue our education and advocacy efforts toward Utah ERA ratification. We want Utah to be the 38th and FINAL state needed to ratify the EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT so we can all say, rati-FINALLY! #raceto38

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.
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!
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.
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.
