Give the Gift of Equality!  <http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/1987/images/Jeannes%20Pics/Gift%20of%20Equality.png> 

Dear Free,

We need your help now! The final vote on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the Illinois State Legislature will likely be Tuesday, December 2nd. This is the last full day of session and likely our last chance to get it done in 2014. If we leave it until January, we will have to start all over again. Now, this vote depends on two things: 1) Having the last handful of YES commitments for votes from Illinois State Representatives - we need five - and 2) Those Representatives showing up for the vote.

What can you do? Make calls, share this email, and donate to pay for the lists!

 <mailto:jeanne at pdamerica.org?subject=Please%20Send%20Me%20a%20Call%20List%20for%20ERA&body=I%20would%20like%20a%20call%20list%20for%20the%20ERA%20campaign.> 




·         CALL - We need to make 5,700 calls made to constituents in the legislators' districts in the next 72 hours. Legislators have said they want to hear from their constituents, but many constituents are unaware that the ERA is up for a vote. Can you call 50 or more people from our carefully selected list and ask constituents to call their legislator? 

o    GET A CALL LIST - You can use this link to email us ( <mailto:jeanne at pdamerica.org?subject=I%20Need%20an%20ERA%20Call%20List&body=Please%20send%20me%20a%20call%20list%20for%20the%20ERA.%20> Call List) for a call list. Please state if you want an online list (like VAN or Vote Builder) or a sheet you can print out at home.

o    INFORMATION - You can find scripts, talking points, and other legislators to call here too by using this link ( <http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=XnYlyfijtewyzXo9EHe1KeCyDm4aqKCm> INFORMATION).

·         SHARE - You can share this information on social media. Use this link ( <http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=RKDKY0LcfkK9mzhwvtPscOCyDm4aqKCm> SHARE) to get access to additional information and talking points on the ERA, Twitter hashtags, Twitter addresses for legislators in Illinois, and other resources. Also, please share this email, by using the links at the top of the page to spread it via Facebook and Twitter.

·         DONATE - You can go here ( <http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=avWg7DJzePP2j2wXC9iqHOCyDm4aqKCm> DONATE) to make a donation to cover our costs for the purchase of call lists. 

Remember, we have to get this done now, and plus, equality is a great gift! While it may mean making some calls this weekend, it's better than anything you will find at a Black Friday sale.

So, wish us luck in Springfield on Monday and Tuesday, and we will wish you luck as you continue the fight with us in the battle for equality!

Andrea, Tammy, Cathy, and Jeanne in Illinois
