“The Heart of Human Rights: Faith-Fueled Advocacy on Issues of Our Day.”
March 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
We are all created in God’s image, equal in dignity and worth, but we are not all granted equal rights in the United States.
The U.S. is the only democracy and one of only 18 countries worldwide that does not plainly protect women’s rights or prohibit gender discrimination in its constitution. Despite gender-based injustice such as sexual and intimate partner violence, workplace harassment, and pregnancy and pay discrimination, our nation has never corrected the purposeful, historic exclusion of women from our founding document.
That may change this year, now that the needed 38 states have ratified the Equal Rights Amendment, passed by Congress nearly 50 years ago, which provides that rights “shall not be denied or abridged on the basis of sex.”
In celebration of International Women’s Day, join Justice Revival for a special conversation with two extraordinary guest speakers to explore the ERA from the perspective of Christian faith and commitment to fundamental human rights.
