NC, make history; approve the ERA
I recently discovered that the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been ratified since passing Congress in 1972.
Thirteen states haven’t yet ratified: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and Virginia.
Only one more state needs to ratify it for it to become law. Why not North Carolina?
Virginia recently blew the opportunity to become the 38th and final state. I’d like to think we’re better than Virginia.
My request to our legislature is to rise to the occasion and ratify the ERA.
This would show the U.S. electorate that we are a forward-looking state where everyone, regardless of gender, race or religion is welcome.
