Happy Monday; This week, all eyes are on New Hampshire! Be encouraged.Here is how you can #TakeAction, February 10th
🔹Thank Representative Schrier for Cosponsoring H.J.Res 79
🔹Support Indivisible National’s “Payback Project”
#TakeAction 1 – Federal
Action: Call Congresswoman Schrier, thank her for cosponsoring H.J.Res 79 to eliminate the deadline to pass the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution:Background: The House will vote this week on H.J.Res 79, which retroactively removes the deadline for ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.
This bill is a follow-on to the Blue Wave election in Virginia, where the (new) Democratic state ratified the ERA on January 27, 2020. The Justice Department has agreed with a conservative lawsuit that this is too late and that the ERA cannot be enacted because the ratification deadline expired in 1982. H.J.Res 79 retroactively removes the deadline.
This resolution is expected to be challenged in court if it passes but is a strong messaging bill in favor of equality and freedom of choice for women.
#TakeAction 2 – Federal
