Help make history! Sign the VAratifyERA petition urging the General Assembly to vote for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Virginia would become the 38th state to ratify this legislation granting equal rights to women in the United States. (Learn more about Supervisor Principi’s efforts to support ERA passage.)
During the 2018 session Virginia citizens made great bipartisan progress, as evidenced by 73 legislators (21 out of 40 Senators and 52 out of 100 Delegates) signing on as ERA patrons. However, the bill was not able to get past committee. Your support could help move ERA legislation out of committee to a floor vote, where early indicators are that it will continue to receive wide bipartisan support. Please sign the petition and share with family and friends!
