LWVNCF letter writing for tomorrow morning is cancelled. While the snow may have stopped falling by 9:00. Driving and parking will probably still be difficult.
We had planned to write the Governor about a state ERA. The constitutions of twenty-four states provide either inclusive or partial guarantees of equal rights on the basis of sex. Minnesota is NOT one of these. Take a few minutes tomorrow and read about both the state and federal ERAs. ERAMN is a website with good information https://www.eramn.org
If you want to write on your own, the governor’s address is:
Office of Governor Tim Walz
130 State Capital
75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd
St. Paul, MN. 55155
Virginia ratified the federal ERA on January 15th,. That means that the required 38 states have voted to ratify the ERA. Encourage your federal representatives and senators to support removal of the ratification deadline.
