The ERA Coalition represents 76 member and lead organizations, and millions of women and men. We support and help lead the movement for passage of an equal rights amendment through public education and messaging campaigns. Our polling research shows that while 94% of Americans support constitutional equality for women and men, 80% mistakenly think it already exists. The ERA Coalition is working to close this information gap.
The ERA Coalition works with its partner organizations to provide a strong forum for all voices advocating for passage of an equal rights amendment. The Coalition actively seeks to broaden the constituencies working for such a constitutional amendment by growing a strong national, inclusive and multi-generational movement to advance this mission.
The ERA Coalition works closely with the lead sponsors of Equal Rights Amendment legislation to lobby Congress to take action and provides educational tools, advocacy training and resources to encourage constituency outreach and educate our supporters on the importance of meeting with their members of Congress.
Captains for Clean Water
Captains for Clean Water is a grassroots nonprofit organization advocating for the elimination of harmful, large-scale Lake Okeechobee discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River Estuaries by restoring the natural flow of Lake Okeechobee water south into the Everglades and Florida Bay. Restoring the natural southern flow of Lake Okeechobee water is essential to the survival of our estuaries, the health of the Everglades, and the long-term viability of South Florida’s largest drinking water source. The problem is known. The solution is known. The funding is available through Amendment 1. All that’s missing is the political will to make it happen.
In 2000, Charles Best, a teacher at a Bronx public high school, wanted his students to read Little House on the Prairie. As he was making photocopies of the one book he could procure, Charles thought about all the money he and his colleagues were spending on books, art supplies, and other materials. And he figured there were people out there who’d want to help — if they could see where their money was going. Charles sketched out a website where teachers could post classroom project requests, and donors could choose the ones they wanted to support. His colleagues posted the first 11 requests. Then it spread. Today, DonorsChoose.org is open to every public school in America.
Change the Ref
Change The Ref (CTR), was formed to empower our Future Leaders. CTR gives the kids of today the tools they need to be empowered to make changes to critical issues that affect our nation, through education, conversation, and activism. It uses urban art and nonviolent creative confrontation to expose the disastrous effects of the mass shooting pandemic.
The Loss of 17 lives on February 14th, 2018 at MSD High School in Parkland, Florida due to yet another mass shooting, caused a conversation to erupt in our country and around the world and a youth movement to be born. CTR is an organization created to fuel the youth of today, empowering them to lead the way and make impactful changes happen.
Founded in the memory of their son Joaquin who was one of the 17 victims, Manuel and Patricia Oliver are committed to making sure that their son’s life and the lives of the other 16 victims are never forgotten and that real change happens to prevent future tragedies like this from happening ever again.
