On Thursday July 13th Women's March Minnesota partnered with ERA MN to rally at the Maple Grove Days Parade and send a message to legislature partaking in the parade that THE TIME FOR EQUAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN IS NOW.
What a kick off to the campaign to ensure the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) gets a hearing and ultimately get voted into the MN state constitution in 2018. (The addition of the ERA will make it illegal to discriminate against someone on account of their gender.)
Special thanks to the Women's March Pink Hat Brigade and ERA MN supporters that showed up rain or shine!We appreciate you letting our MN lawmakers know we want the Equal Rights Amendment to be a priority in 2018!
