Civil Rights Day is an annual celebration established by the Humane Party in order to (i) commemorate past civil rights victories and (ii) promote further protection of civil rights in the United States. Civil Rights Day is celebrated on April 9, which is the anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1866.
For those who are interested in the difference between the original (1920’s) version of the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”) and the modern version (“ERA2”), this simple illustration may be helpful. Note that nothing has been deleted from the 20th-century version. But language has been added in order to fully address the spectrum of issues relating to sex, sexuality, sexual orientation, gender, and marriage equality.
The time to amend our Constitution so as to guarantee equality under the law is right now. Please feel free to share this image and to like the Facebook page for the Equal Rights Amendment II (ERA 2).
