In 2017, Senator Jim Dabakis introduced legislation to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the U.S. Constitution. The measure was reintroduced in 2020 by Rep. Karen Kwan. To date, the Utah Legislature has not given the measure a hearing. In 2020, Virginia became the 38th state needed to ratify the ERA. A legal battle and pending legislation in Cogress will decide the ERA's future. We are working to ensure that Utah takes a pro-equality stands and ratifies in a future session.
