Via Zoom at 12:00pm
Join us for a Zoom presentation on the Equal Rights Amendment, its history and where we are today, led by the Alice Paul Institute. Suffragist and gender equality advocate Alice Paul first introduced the ERA in 1923 to expand the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution to both genders. She understood the importance of constitutional protections for all citizens when she argued, “We shall not be safe until the principle of equal rights is written into the framework of our government.” We will also discuss where the Equal Rights Amendment stands in Congress today and the paths available for the ERA to be ratified to the U.S. Constitution.
You will receive .5 Recognition and Elimination of Bais and .5 of General Law MCLE credit for attending this event.
MCLE certificates will be made available in the week following the event.
