VoteERA.org, the non-profit organization that drafted Measure 89, a ballot initiative to amend the Oregon Constitution with the Equal Rights Amendment, (an amendment to protect women against sex discrimination) and which passed in a landslide victory, has been accepted as a formal partner for the Women’s March on Washington, DC. on January 21, 2017.
VoteERA.org will have board members and supporters marching in Portland and Newport and in Washington, DC to support women’s equality at the federal level with the hope of bringing attention to the century long battle to pass the federal Equal Rights Amendment.
Leanne Littrell DiLorenzo, Founder and President of VoteERA.org said, “the march on Washington is not a partisan issue; rather it is an outcry for all people to rise up and to remember we are a country full of diverse people who should all be respected. The march empowers us to come together to refuse to be silenced and to protect our democracy.”
We encourage everyone who can march to do so and here is the link to learn more at https://www.womensmarch.com.
