1. Ratification of Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in Louisiana

The 14th Amendment of the US Constitution gave former slaves the equality under the law and the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote. However, there is no guarantee of equality under the law for men and women. Our hard fought gains could be eroded in future years.

Therefore, we are asking the Louisiana Legislature to pass a resolution ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.
