We are ONE VOTE AWAY from a ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia and YOU can turn out equality supporters this November!!

Phone banks are open seven days a week, 9 AM and 9 PM EST. As this is a nonpartisan campaign, call lists are based upon age and voter behavior, not party affiliation. Phone banks will cover all 20 districts from the 20/20 Vision for Equality (and the 2 Honorable Mentions).

A few quick notes:

  1. You will need an actionID account to participate in our phone banks. OpenVPB accounts are free and when you click a phone bank link a browser tab will open and take you to openvpb.com where you can log on or open an account.
  2. We will continue to add phone banks through Election Day, November 5th. Phone banks are available by district below, simply click the link on an age group/location combination within a key district.
  3. Every call is valuable, even if you do not speak with someone. Incomplete calls will receive a post card since ~80% of the time the address is still correct.
    Note: If you’d like to help with postcards, please contact our post card coordinator, Yoomie, at VAratifyERA.pc@gmail.com
  4. If you are calling from out of state and someone asks why you are calling Virginia voters we recommend an answer along these lines, “I am a pay equity / gender equality advocate and I want to help Virginia make history.”
  5. The phone bank will open in a new tab. If you have any problems or if the connection glitches please close the tab, come back to this page, and relaunch.
    Note: If the link below takes you to the OpenVPB page and you are asked for a code (versus taking you directly to a phone banking script), either the phone bank was completed and the link has not yet been archived or you are not calling between 9 AM and 9 PM. 
  6. Please keep our FAQ link open in a third tab in case someone has a question so you can easily answer it. If a caller wants to spin the conversation in directions that are not supportive of the ERA simply thank them for their time and disengage.
  7. Have fun!
