Message from National NOW President Christian F. Nunes
July 28, 2023
I’m still riding on a high from last weekend’s ERA Centennial Convention! For more than a half century winning a constitutional guarantee of equality for women has been a top priority for NOW. I want to thank you all for your enduring commitment to women’s equality. And know that NOW will not back down from this mission. We will persist!
I spoke alongside former Congresswoman and current president of NY State NOW Carolyn Maloney and former National NOW President Ellie Smeal as we rallied and marched for our constitutional rights along with NY Governor Kathy Hochul and NY Attorney General Letitia James. At the Saturday morning panel, I joined Congresswoman Cori Bush and Generation Ratify, where we discussed the past, present, and future of the ERA movement. The laws and policies that have been part of our country from the start were designed explicitly to exclude, oppress, and discriminate. Together, we can fix what’s broken in our Constitution and live up to the ideals of freedom and equality we cherish.
One of the best parts of this convention was seeing different generations come together and unite for a common cause. There is part of me that mourns that young people are fighting the same battles that those before us fought. But just as we stand on the shoulders of the generations who’ve been carrying that fight down the decades, to the next generation of ERA activists, I say we’re here to help you build on our progress. Let’s continue to urge for Congress to remove the original and quite frankly, arbitrary, seven-year deadline for ratification so that all women can truly experience “equal justice under law.”
