Transcript BROADSIDE HOUSTON AREA NOW CHAPTERS VOL. 13, NO. 7 AUGUST 1982 EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT TEMPORARILY DELAYED On June 24, 1982, the National Organization for Women ended the ERA Countdown Campaign. It was apparent that a few men in a few states were going to deny equality to over half the population by failing to ratify the proposed amendment by the June 30 deadline. Media reports claimed NOW conceded or admitted defeat, which was not true. Eleanor Smeal, President of NOW announced the new direction the organization will be taking in getting more feminist men and women elected, therefore we will know we have the votes for ratification. 1982 is a ripe time to "clean house" because all house seats are up for election and many seats in the Senate. We need to work on both a state and federal level. The ERA has been reintroduced in both houses but a vote is not expected this year. Now is the time to make your committment to Equality as never before. Register to vote, work a campaign, donate to NOW/PAC, come out for the Walkathon, help identify our friends who are running for office. $$$$$$$$$$ NOW/PAC WOMAN WALK '82 $$$$$$$$$$' Last year several of the NOW chapters in Houston participated in the "Last Walk for the ERA." We had never done a walkathon in Houston before, but figured it would be something to regret if we didn't do it for the countdown campaign. About $7,000 dollars where raised for the ERA. This year the focus of the Walkathon is to raise money for NOW/ PAC. Through our political action committee we can make donations to pro-equality candidates and endorse those candidates. Also we hope to find more feminists who will become candidates. Walkers and support staff are needed for the walkathon which is scheduled for Sunday September 26. To be a walker, all you do is find sponsors who agree to donate a certain amount of money per mile that you walk, or a flat rate for once around the course (probably Memorial Park). Pledge forms will be available soon. If you can not walk, sponsor someone else, serve at one of the check stations, or the water/first aid crew. There will be prizes in different categories. Come to your August chapter meeting for more details or call Deborah Bell 681-9507, Melissa Key at 520-8489, or Pat Kuhlmann at 488-3278.
