Getting the 28th Amendment (Equal Rights) certified and published in the Constitution probably requires a vote from the U.S. Senate to recognize the amendment. There are 34 states with U.S. Senate races in 2020.
Therefore, the VoteEqualityUS campaign is intently focused on voter outreach and education in eight key states. We believe the outcome of these particular races will determine whether or not the United States has a gender equality leadership in the Senate that will prioritize gender equality in 2021 and beyond.
We can crowdsource information on issues to ensure a more fair and open election! If you see any issues during early voting or on November 3rd, check our link for reporting an issue via See Say 2020.
The most important thing every gender equality lover can do this year is to VOTE EQUALITY! Check YOUR VOTE for resources to check your voter registration and plan your vote.
Once your voting plan is set, help others to get their voting plans in place. BE A VOTE MULTIPLIER to help get others to the polls! There is also information on becoming a poll worker and reporting a voting issue on this page.
With 35 senate races the future of gender equality is in the hands of American voters. Check if your state has a senate race in 2020 and reach out to candidates to tell them how important gender equality is to you as a voter. See SENATE RACES for candidate contact information by state.
If Mitch McConnell wants to champion gender equality before the election, he can bring the legislation (SJRes6) carried by Senators Cardin (D-MD) and Murkowski (R-AK) to the Senate floor for a debate and vote. It is widely believed that the resolution, currently sponsored by 49 Senators, would pass.
SJRes6 removes the deadline and recognizes the 28th Amendment (Equal Rights). Passage of SJRes6 would be Congress' final step to ensure gender equality is added to our Constitution. Check SJRes6 to see if your current Senators are sponsors and if so, please take a moment to say thank you! If not, please take a moment to tell them why constitutional gender equality is important to you.
NOTE: On February 13, 2020 the House of Representatives passed the corresponding legislation, HJRes79.
