Vigorously support women’s rights by fully engaging in efforts to ratify the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

Yes, Katha, Once More Unto the Breach we go, and this time we are determined to get our guarantee of equal rights for women “in writing”!  Here in  New Mexico, where we have already ratified the ERA and passed our own state ERA, we are mobilizing, networking, finding our voices, finding many allies and finding empowerment and inspiration in our feminist community.

Here are some photos from the Roe v Wade anniversary rally and pro-ERA demonstration at the statehouse in Santa Fe on 1/25.
