Join Network NOVA and women across the state for Rev’d Up for the ERA and Equality in Richmond March 9-10, 2022. Despite Attorney General Miyares’ political grandstanding and unwillingness to uphold the political process and honor the will of the people of Virginia, women will show up to vote for constitutional gender equality yet again. Over 81% of Virginians supported ratification of the ERA. We fought for over 100 years to be recognized in the U.S. Constitution and nothing will stand in our way. Here is the updated agenda and Press Release to share.
Please note that as we move towards the end of the General Assembly 2022 Session, Tuesday Tidbits will only be for Calls to Actions (CTAs) and events that are time sensitive. Please watch for Thursdays’ BADASS Briefing.
