The Equality Amendment: Are You In?


“Equality of rights shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex (including pregnancy, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity), and/or race (including ethnicity, national origin, or color), and/or like grounds of subordination (such as disability). Neither the United States nor any State shall give force by law to disadvantages suffered by those whose equality rights are denied or abridged.”

The U. S. Constitution does not explicitly guarantee equality to all Americans. While at times extended to women, people of color, LGBTQ people and those with disabilities by judicial interpretation and legislation, these guarantees have been undermined by courts and elected leaders so that they have not produced real equality.

We recognize the reality that inequalities intersect, interconnect, and overlap, making it impossible to rectify one alone. All Americans deserve equality that cannot be taken away or disregarded. 

Only the Constitution can provide this power and protection. Let's make equality equal, once and for all.
