Transcript The boycott began in January, 1977, when a group of N.O.W. women placed an ad in a Los Angeles paper asking people not to travel or trade in Nevada, which had refused to ratify the E.R.A. The outraged response from a Nevada legislator convinced them they had "hit a nerve." Soon after, the N.O.W. Board resolved to make the boycott a national project and to urge organizations to restrict their conventions to ratified states. More than 80 organizations have joined the boycott and switched their conventions to ratified states. (The latest to join was the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which has changed its 1979 convention from Chicago to Houston.) These organizations are representative of many areas: health, insurance, finance, and law. Latest estimates are that cancellations have resulted in losses of more than $28.5 million per year to unratified states. The Kansas City Council sent its state an invoice for $1.1 million of lost revenue because Missouri hasn't yet ratified the E.R.A. Also, convention bureaus in Chicago and New Orleans have sent resolutions to their state legislatures in support of E.R.A. ratification. N.O.W. National Action Center is serving as a resource for information and boycott action. Brochures, stating the purpose of the boycott and providing facts and figures, and buttons (costing 22<£ each) are available by writing: Boycott Campaign for E.R.A. N.O.W. Action Center 425 13th Street Washington, D.C. 20004 N.O.W. urges all members to work toward adding more organizations to the list of boycott supporters. Members should find out whether the organizations they belong to may be scheduling conventions in unratified states, and if so, they should take action to persuade organization leaders to reschedule conventions. Also, alert friends to the boycott. N.O.W. is particularly concerned* about the International Nurses Congress which plans to meet in Kansas Cfty and urges all nurses to take immediate steps in moving the congress to a ratified state. • Y.B broad-side 1: a sheet of paper printed on one or both sides and folded 2: any strong or comprehensive attack, as by criticism 3: the simultaneous discharge of all the guns on one side of a ship
