Black women lead push to pass ERA

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent Monday evening detailing how Black women have been vital in the fight to enshrine the Equal Rights Amendment as the 28th Amendment to the constitution.

The group was clear about why now is the time to make that amendment the law of the land.

“Black women have always been leaders of the fight to enshrine equality in our nation’s constitution, but we haven’t always been in the headlines for leading that work,” said Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo).

“Equality is overdue,” she said. “I rise in support of the Equal Rights Amendment today on the shoulders of the scores of Black women and LGBTQ+ people who have toiled on this initiative for 100 whole years to amplify their calls, calls they made in this very chamber and outside of it, that resonate today as the attacks against us intensify.”
