From “Activists call on N.C. to follow Nevada in ratifying ERA,” 3/28/17, Outer Banks Sentinel,

“Advocates believe the emerging national push for the ERA signals a new energy in the women’s rights movement. Marena Groll, ERA-NC Alliance co-president, said, “We are witnessing an historic shift, a new wave for women’s rights in America.” “

“Dare League of Women Voters ERA Committee Chair Judy Lotas cheered the “bipartisan” Nevada win. Calling it “a nice shot in the arm for ERA,” Lotas told the Sentinel, “Oh, how I want N.C. to be one of the two remaining states needed to ratify!” “

We are fired up and ready to go! Make your calls now.
