VERC Non-Partisan

Virginia Equal Rights Coalition


VERC is a movement supporting ratification by Virginia of the Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution.

It’s past time for Virginia to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment!

The ERA was drafted by Alice Paul in 1923. Congress overwhelmingly passed the ERA in 1972. Thirty-eight states are required to ratify a Constitutional Amendment for it to enter the Constitution. Because thirty-seven states have ratified the Amendment, most recently Illinois in June, 2018, only one more state is needed. That state could be Virginia, a state uniquely situated to continue standing up for individual rights by amendment of the United States Constitution.
