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 ERA. As part of the Three State Strategy, the Nevada Legislature passed ERA legislation in March 2017.  Now only two more states need to accomplish passing this legislation and Georgia should be one of those states.

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. Passage fell short of the required 38 states with just 35 states ratifying the amendment.  Read more ERA history at the links below.
