Let’s Ratify the ERA in Virginia!
September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Santa Cruz Indivisible, Swing Left Santa Cruz, and Sister District invite you to join us at a wine and Hors d’oeuvres garden party fundraiser.
There are currently 37 states that have passed Equal Rights Amendment. Only one more state needs to ratify the amendment. In the early months of 2019 two states, Nevada and Virginia, almost passed it. Virginia needed just a few more votes to make this happen. In November 2019 Virginia has the opportunity to flip its state House of Delegates blue, and the Democratic candidates running have said that if they are elected and win a majority in the state House, they will ratify the ERA during the 2020 legislative session.
Are you interested in supporting Virginia’s effort to become the 38th and final state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment? If so, please join us on September 22 from 4–6pm at a fundraiser for Virginia Democrat candidates Josh Cole and Debra Rodman who are running for State House of Delegates and State Senate respectively in the November 2019 election. We are excited that both candidates support ratifying the ERA and will provide more info on both of the candidates as well as what other grassroots efforts are happening in Virginia. Our fundraiser goal is to raise $500 for each candidate. Early fundraising can give candidates a winning advantage.
We will also have opportunities to sign up for phone banking for these candidates if you are able to support the campaigns in this way.
