Exciting news and opportunities on upcoming ERA activities this fall from NC NOW and AAUW-NC member Denny McGuire.
The ERA-NC Alliance is partnering with VoteEquality.US, which is taking its glammed-up ERA RV throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia in September, October and November 2020. The RV volunteers plan to cover 3,000 miles on this tour.
See the planned stops at Vote Equality Southern Tour.
The RV will make stops in cities and at college campuses to promote the ERA and educate voters about a near future that will include the 28th Amendment as part of the U.S. Constitution. The RV tour will travel to 11 other non-ratified states in the South and West before Nov. 3.
