We are urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to take the immediate action of directing his Office of Legal Counsel to withdraw the January 6, 2020 opinion memo from the Attorney General Barr Department of Justice.

When Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA on January 27, 2020, all constitutional requirements for the ERA to become the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution were satisfied. Yet, the ERA has not been published by the Archivist, who is deferring to the opinion issued by the previous Administration’s Office of Legal Counsel.

Attorney General Garland has the unique opportunity to correct this error and let history be made.

We, the signers, request he take immediate action on this important issue, promoting equality and preventing the denial of equal rights on account of sex in our great nation.
