Did you miss the ERA-NC Alliance press conference last April? Maybe you went and want to enjoy the speeches again! Videos of the 3 speeches from the press conference from 4/12/16 are now available online. The theme of our event was “Why the ERA, Why NOW”? The event was held on “Equal Pay Day” which recognizes when women (on average) finally make what men had made (on average) the year before.
The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution that would expressly prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. ERA-NC Alliance is a coalition of women’s groups and individuals who are formally working together in NC to get the Equal Rights Amendment passed.
The press conference was led by Roberta Madden, co-founder of RatifyERANC. See Madden’s speech here.
Our last speaker was Gailya Paliga, President of NC National Organization for Women. See Paliga’s speech here.
