Delawareans for the Equal Rights Amendment

Our Mission

Delaware ERANow is committed to achieving greater recognition and protection of women’s rights and preparing them to take seats at the tables where decisions affecting their and their family’s interests and concerns are determined.

In its relatively short history (founded in late 2015), Delaware ERANow has successfully focused on two mission-central initiatives. First, it has played a central role in the passage of an Equal Rights Amendment to Delaware’s Constitution in 2018. We look forward to its final passage and enactment by Delaware’s General Assembly in 2019. Upon enactment of the state ERA,  attention will return to assisting passage of a federal ERA. Second, in 2017 our inaugural, nonpartisan Ready to Run® Delaware campaign training program for women contributed to the record number of women running for elective office in the state.

The Fund supports Delaware ERANow’s efforts to build public
awareness of the need for fair and equal treatment of women
and girls under the law and its empowerment programs such
as Ready to Run® Delaware.
