Lead Virginia Forward Rally
February 14, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
VAratifyERA campaign will host a “Lead Virginia Forward, One State to 38” rally on Thursday, February 14th, on the steps of the Virginia State Capitol (1000 Bank Street, Richmond) at 10:30 AM. This Valentine’s Day, let’s join together and declare, “Virginia is for equality lovers!”
Speakers at the rally will include Toni Van Pelt, President of NOW National; Ellie Smeal, President of Feminist Majority Foundation; and Carol Jenkins, President of ERA Coalition.
The rally will be organized by Shanise Williams, Community Organizer & Founder of the Close Knit Communities Coalition. She states, “We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted by the past. The road which has led us to where we are now, with its distractions and obstructions, cannot stop us from moving forward. Today women stand together, in solidarity, demanding equality like many before us, but unwilling to patiently wait any longer. History may repeat itself, but this isn’t history, this is HERstory!”
Inclusion on this calendar is not an endorsement by VAratifyERA.
