The Equal Rights Amendment is very simple. It’s only 24 words, and it states that equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.

It’s been a hundred years since the ERA was first introduced, and it’s still not ratified in the Constitution. That is what Generation Ratify is fighting for. We are a nationwide movement of young people, young queer people, young women, young gender minorities. We have over 12,000 members in all 50 states, and through empowerment, advocacy, and education, we are fighting for gender equality.

As a co-founder and the creative director, it’s my job to bring art into the movement as a tool for change, I really wanna be loud. I wanna be vocal. And tikkun olam means using my creative sense, my artistic sense to make our voices heard. For this issue, I wanna show that activism doesn’t have to look one way. We can use our diverse skills and funnel them into this shared passion and shared cause. As young people, we demand gender equality, and we are making change happen.
