From CBE’s 2022 Conference “Exploring the Fullness of Galatians 3:28” in Atlanta Georgia.
“All people are equally valuable in the sight of their Creator, and thus deserve equal regard in human laws and legal systems.” This theological truth has inspired a growing movement of faith leaders calling for women to be included as citizens of equal stature under the US Constitution. Concerns about widespread domestic and sexual violence, ongoing pregnancy and pay discrimination, high rates of maternal mortality, and other forms of gender-based injustice move these advocates to seek needed protection for women’s rights. The Equal Rights Amendment is a basic reform that affirms simply, “Equality of rights under the law should not be denied or abridged … on account of sex.” Join this workshop to Iearn more about the ERA and its potential for advancing justice and equality among women and men. Find out how the faith4ERA campaign is advocating for the ERA to be published as the twenty-eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution–and how faith Ieaders and communities can be a part of this historic justice movement.
