January Public Meeting: The ERA: Forward to Fruition

Published by Minnesota Atheists on

Head shot of Betty Folliard

Betty Folliard, Founder of ERA Minnesota, will give a presentation on the history of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is so needed today. She will outline arguments for and against the ERA and provide up-to-the-moment progress on both the federal ERA and the Minnesota State ERA Ballot Initiative that passed the Minnesota Senate 43-23 in 2023 and which will be up for final consideration when the Minnesota Legislative Session reconvenes in February 2024. The Minnesota State ERA Ballot Initiative would put the question to the voters as to whether our Minnesota State Constitution would be amended to include a state ERA.

ERA Minnesota is also pleased to announce a public ERA rally in the Minnesota Capitol Rotunda on the first day of session, Monday, February 12th, 2024, 10 a.m.–noon. Supporters are invited to show up and help lift the ERA over the finish line in 2024.
