The positive outcome in the Virginia November 5 elections could be pivotal for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. In addition, two very important bipartisan bills are being brought before the Senate and the House which will expedite implementation of the 27th amendment once the 38th state has ratified.

On the occasion of the League of Women Voters 100th anniversary, please consider joining our local League's Centennial Circle of donors by contributing $100 or more in 2019-2020. Funds will be used locally to advance our mission of empowering voters and defending democracy.
