Whereas the United States Congress proposed an amendment to the United States Constitution on March 22, 1972 that grant equal rights to all Americans regardless of sex or gender;
and whereas Congress set a deadline of June 30, 1982 for tow-thirds of the 50 states' legislatures to ratify the amendment;
and whereas the deadline passed with only 35 of the required 38 states ratifying the amendment;
and whereas Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment;
and whereas Congress will vote February 10, 2020 as to whether or not to rescind the deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment.
Therefore, we the undersigned humbly request that Congress rescind the deadline and thus make the Equal Rights Amendment the 28th amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.
