Rodney Smolla, Dean of the Delaware Law School and five ERANow members and supporters (Suzanne Moore, Linda Barnett, Robert Hayman, Kathleen MacRae, and Richard Morrison) spoke before the Delaware Senate Executive Committee on June 8, 2016 in support of SB 190. The bill proposes an Equal Protection Amendment to the Delaware Constitution. The amendment would provide equal protection from discrimination for women and other groups that historically have been targets of discrimination.

The proposed amendment is particularly important for Delaware women as the U. S. Constitution does not provide the same level of protection of women’s rights that the Delaware Equal Protection Amendment would insure.

Contact your State Senator and Representative and urge them to vote yes on the amendment which is of critical importance to women — http://legis.delaware.gov/legislature.nsf/lookup/know_your_legislators?open&nav=leginfo
