Transcript BROADSIDE/HERIZONS August, 1980 JULY 9 DEMONSTRATION HELD AT REPUBLICAN HQ HERE Page 3 ON JULY 9, ERA SUPPORTERS FROM ALL OVER HOUSTON MET IN front of the Republican Headquarters at Westheimer and Ktrby to express their outrage at the Republican Party^s retreat from support of the Equal Rights Amendment. The Republican Party has endorsed the ERA in every platform since 1940— until now. The over 100 men and women carried signs with imaginative decorations and hard-hitting slogans: "They said slavery was a states' rights issue, too!" "How DARE you 'protect' me from Equality?" We know there were over 100, because Lee Lannoo collected signatures of 90 demonstrators—and we couldn't get to them all—on a petition to the Republican Party Convention, in which we let them know that we find anything less than the ERA unacceptable. The petition was sent to Rep. Margaret Heckler in Detroit. This demonstration is a good example of how ERA supporters can get together and act on short notice. Jeanne Saletan and Evie Whitsett of Bay Area NOW thought up the demonstration; Jeanne handled the publicity. We had good media coverage: Channel 2 showed us live at 6:00 pm, and again at 10; Channel 13 taped us and ran the tapes at 6 and 10. We also enjoyed radio and newspaper coverage. Jean Messerve loaned us her apartment to make signs; Gail Hilliard was cranking out posters right and left. Many organizations were represented at the rally: YWCA, AAUW, Texas NOW, and League of Women Voters among them; many individuals also spontaneously participated. The date was also significant, July 9 was the day Alice Paul died in 1977, after spending some 50 years of her life promoting the ERA, The big March in Washington in 1978 was held on the first anniversary of Alice Paul»s death. JULY MEETINGS: strategy for coming year laid out The Action, Program, and Rap meetings for July were all turned into Strategy Sessions. HANOW President Aileen McMurrer guided the continuing discussions, in which we listed our goals and dreams for HANOW, considered what problems and obstacles stand in our way, and finally, proposed concrete action. A tentative schedule of activities was laid out for the year.
