Welcome

Mission Statement:  Ratify ERA, Georgia! shall work to facilitate the passage of the ERA in the State of Georgia.  As a non-partisan organization, we shall seek support from all citizens of Georgia while we work to gain equal protection for every person.

It is past time for Georgians to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Only three more states are needed to make the Equal Rights Amendment part of the U.S. Constitution. Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment was stopped short of completion in 1979, lacking three states (approval of 38 states is required). We need you to join with us to make this happen. Send your contact information to info@ratifyerageorgia.com

The Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced in 1923 and was originally written by Alice Paul and Crystal Eastman. In 1972, it passed both houses of Congress and was submitted to the state legislatures for ratification. It fell short of the required 38 states with just 35 states ratifying the amendment. This is where more work needs to be done with three more states ratifying the amendment in joint with congress removing the deadline to the original legislation.
