Removing the Deadline – Telephone Script – Senators
Hello, my name is [name] and my zip code is [zip code].
As a constituent of Senator [name] , I am calling to express my support and that of the members of the Zonta Clubs of [state/district] for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). We are reaching out to ask that [name of Congress person] become a co-sponsor of SJ RESolution 1, extending the deadline for the ERA, along with Senators Cardin and Murkowski.
Women will not be equal in this country until our rights are solidified with the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. With the passage of S.J. Res. 1 and H.J. Res. 53, the ratification deadline for the ERA would be removed, allowing for one final state to make Equal rights for Women in our Constitution a reality. With only one state left to ratify, and Virginia, Arizona and North Carolina all close to ratification, now is the time to secure the fight for the ERA! I represent many women in the Zonta Clubs of [state/ district] who have fought for passage of this amendment for generations. It’s time to stand with them..
We are asking [name of Congress person] to commit to supporting and co-sponsoring S.J. Res. 1 removing the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, because Equal Rights should not have a deadline.
Thank you for your time, do you need any more information from me?
