Nevada: AJR3 – Ratifies proposed constitutional amendment relative to equal rights for men and women.
The Equal Rights Amendment is back and Nevada can be one of three states needed to ratify this amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing equal rights to all men and women.
When: AJR3 will be heard in Assembly Elections on Thursday, March 26, 3:45 PM.
Where: At the legislative building in Carson City and teleconferenced to Grant Sawyer Bldg. in Las Vegas .
You can sign in support of AJR3 and testify at both locations.
Please show your support for this important legislation:
1) Come to the hearing on Thursday at 3:45
2) Email or call your Assemblyperson ASAP and ask her/him to support AJR3. Tell them it is needed to ensure equal protection under the law for women and men. See links below for talking points. Email now or no later than March 31.
3) If your Assemblyperson is on the committee (see names below), please contact them today.
The opposition (Eagle Forum and the like) will be there in force and WE need to have a strong voice in favor of the ERA.
