I was glad to finally have a partner in fighting for what I knew was right. Neither of us wanted to see this happen to anyone else.Julia Sanchez, ERA client & student survivor
We don’t just enforce the laws — we help make them, too. With innovative reforms inspired by the real people we serve, we work to make the law stronger, better, and more just.
Partnering with advocacy and community organizations across the country, we fight for your right to a fair paycheck, to be economically secure, and to learn in schools that do the right thing when you experience harassment or assault.
Learn what your rights are so you can navigate your situation and make the best decision for you.
