HIGH FIVE FOR ERA 2015!
JOIN MYRA TO GIVE A "HIGH 5" FOR ERA 2015!

Myra, a Montgomery College student from Ghana, became our very first monthly donor since United 4 Equality, LLC launched the ERA 2015 campaign in May 2009!
Myra's savvy investment in ending the 2nd class citizenship of women and girls under the U.S. Constitution sent our spirits soaring! Not only was this young woman willing to donate $5 each month from wages she earns at a department store to put herself through college, but Myra reminded us that inequality for women and girls knows no borders and that it is no longer an acceptable condition for millennial females who seek a better future.
Five years ago, in May 2009, Carolyn A. Cook, founder and CEO of United 4 Equality, LLC, wrote the original proposal for joint resolutions to eliminate Congress's deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment. She became the first woman to challenge Congress's arbitrary deadline as unconstitutional. Two years later, on the 100th anniversary of Int'l Women's Day, March 8, 2011 Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin debuted our bill. A year later, U4E made history again when the Senate introduced a companion bill. Today, we hold the promise of Carolyn's vision and tireless commitment to achieving the ERA in SJR15/HJR43.
With 2 years remaining, it's time to give U4E's free Google site a new look, to propel the ERA 2015 campaign into the national debate where it belongs and to put certain members of Congress on notice that Americans will not condone the segregation of Women from the U.S. Constitution another election cycle.
Would you join Myra in giving a "High Five" to elevating the status of women and girls in America, in Ghana and around the World by becoming an official sponsor of the ERA 2015 campaign now in its final victory lap?
