WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have come out in support of Womenâ€™s Rights.Â Unfortunately, Donald Trump hasnâ€™t.Â The ERA is a US Constitutional Amendment that would empower all women no matter their color and provide for genderÂ equality. The ERA is the unfinished business of the Civil Rights Movement.Â At the rally speakers will talk about the systemic issues that the ERA would address.Â From the Gender Pay Gap, to health care choices, to who can use what bathroom, which is why your participation is essential.Â To make your donation, pleaseÂ Click Here.
We have an amazing speaker line up. Just to name a few:

He first won election to the Missouri House in 2010, and later became the chairman of stateâ€™s Legislative Black Caucus. Piersonâ€™s church became a major gathering point during the Ferguson unrest. It hosted a raucous August press conference for Gov. Jay Nixon, and also served as a sanctuary for protesters after a grand jury declined to charge former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with a crime.
