We need as many Suffolk residents as possible (women and men) to attend the December 5th Suffolk City Council meeting to support putting a vote for the Equal Rights Amendment on the agenda for the December 19th City Council meeting.
This vote will be Suffolk’s voice in the fight to get Virginia to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The meeting is at 7:00 pm in the City Council chamber at 442 West Washington Street.
Please refer people to https://varatifyera.org so they can sign the petition and review talking points and action steps.
Chris Jones’s vote will be important but so far he has not voiced his support for the amendment.
The Speaker of the House James Howell, and Tommy Normant are fighting against Virginia ratifying this amendment. We need to contact them and let them know where we stand. https://virginiageneralassembly.gov
Thanks and we hope to see you at 442 West Washington Street Wednesday at 7pm
