VAratifyERA is an all-volunteer, nonpartisan grassroots campaign supporting ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in Virginia. The campaign advocates for the passage of the ERA, but does not endorse or support candidates. We provide educational information about ERA efforts in Virginia and nationally. We work alongside other organizations across the commonwealth and nationally who support ERA ratification.

Virginia could be the last state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Join the VAratifyERA campaign by SIGNING up and DONATING today!

Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Recap of ERA legislation in the 2019 session of Virginia’s General Assembly

  • The Senate passed the ERA resolution but it was never given a fair hearing in the House. See the Senate scorecard here.
  • Two rules changes were introduced to bring the ERA resolution to the House floor for a full and fair vote. Both failed but provided a recorded vote on the ERA.
  • A no vote on rules change HR274 was a no vote on the ERA. See the House scorecard here.
