This is _________________________, and I am calling on behalf of United 4 Equality and its coalition partners. We are calling to request Representative ___________________ become a co-sponsor of H. J. Res. 47, “Removing the Deadline for the Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.”  Introduced on the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, March 8, 2011, this resolution is sponsored by a strong contingency of Congresspersons led by Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Congressman Robert Andrews (D-NJ), and including Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL).

This new ERA resolution will:

• Eliminate the 1982 time limit, so that a path to equality exists in perpetuity.

• Affirm that only three more states are required for ERA to become the 28th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.

We hope that Representative _______________________ will give earnest consideration to accepting our offer serve as a co-sponsor of this critical legislation.  Please call or e-mail me immediately at #__________________ E:________________ with your decision.

(Thank them for their time before ending the call.)
