Action Update: 100 Days of Fighting Back

April 28, 2017 | by

Tomorrow marks the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency. And, as expected, we have seen callous attacks on the rights of women and girls, and other vulnerable communities, in just these first 3 months. 

But we are not going to take these attacks lying down. As ERA’s Executive Director Noreen Farrell said at the January Women’s March in Oakland, “We have power!” And we still do. We are so proud that over a thousand of you have joined the ERA Action Team and have been marching, lobbying, calling and writing their representatives ever since. Thank you for your enthusiasm, participation and leadership. As we reach the

As we reach the 100-day mark, we’re gathering our thoughts and our energy and preparing for the long fight ahead.

We’d love to hear from you about how you’d like to be involved in the Action Team going forward –please fill out a very brief anonymous survey.

In these dangerous times, ERA is continuing to move forward with an aggressive and ambitious agenda to advance and protect rights and opportunities for women and girls, including such major initiatives as:

  • The Stronger California legislative campaign, which is setting a high bar for women’s economic security and family-friendly legislation around the country,
  • The Network to Stop School Sexual Violence, which will step in to protect students’ right to a safe and equal education, even if federal protections are weakened or taken away, and
  • The national Equal Pay Today campaign fighting to close the gender wage gap in states and at the federal level.

Thank you for all you’ve done so far. We hope that you will continue to join us in supporting these and other initiatives to advance the cause of women and girls. Let’s make it clear that we will not stop until we have achieved equal rights and opportunities for all.
