Virginia Getting out the Vote for ERA

“This past February, Virginia was ONE (devastating) VOTE SHORT of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. If Virginia Ratifies the ERA, they will be the 38th and Final State. On November 5th, every seat in Virginia’s General Assembly is up for election and equality advocates are mobilizing to turn out the vote.

This is non-partisan work, asking voters to turn out to support Equal Rights.
