Transcript PRESIDENTIAL CONTEST IN PRIMARY ERA DEMONSTRATION GREETS MORMONS NOW is not supporting any one candidate as an organization. The two candidates with good track records on ERA and women's issues are Democrat Edward Kennedy and Republican John Anderson. In BANOW, Frances Hicks (488-85?4) is working for Kennedy and Jeanne Saletan (471-2862) is working for Anderson. If you vote in the Democrat primary on May 3i Kennedy will be on the ballot. Your other choices are Carter or uncommitted At the precinct convention, after 7 PMf you will sign in with a presidential preference, one of these three choices. You will caucus on this basis and elect delegates to the next level, called Senatorial Convention, proportional to these preferences. $0% of the total delegates must be If you vote in the Republican primary (no advance registration is required), you will find that John Anderson is NOT on the ballot. He did not file in Texas You can vote "Uncommitted" in When we learned that a regional conference of Mormons would take place at UH/CLC, we thought that would be a lovely occasion to demonstrate support of ERA and Sonia Johnson, the admirable woman who was excommunicated for ERA advocacy. On a bitterly cold and windy Saturday 26 people showed up at 7s30 AM to greet arriving Mormons with signs that read: MORMONS FOR ERA RELIEF SOCIETY NEEDS YOU, SONIA WOMEN HAVE A VOICE TOO EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ELDERS CALLISTER GET OFF OUR BACKS FULL EQUALITY IS JOYFUL PATRIARCHY OPPRESSES ALWAYS IDS IS MALE POWER the polling booth as an alternative to Reagan or Bush who will select THEIR delegates to state convention directly. "Uncomr.itteds" , provided they comprise 205^ or more in the congressional district, are selected indirectly so there is no way of knowing if Anderson will get them. At the precinct convention you will NOT sign a presidential preference sheet and delegates to the next level, District Convention,will deal mainly with party organization and resolutions. Sounds confusing, but it will come clear. Do go, observe, ask questions, challenge all assumptions. Go prepared to nominate as delegate one of your feminist friends who is not going to Chicago for toarch on May 10. That is the date of the next level conventions in both parties. ERA ACTION TEAM MEETS WEDNESDAYS This week we abandoned phones and pens and took up scissors and pins to make our famous sheet and cloth letter banners for an ERA demonstration to greet the three Republican candidates who will debate here Many of those arriving for the conference arrived at the wrong end of the building and would have bypassed our demonstration but we sent one of our own to re-direct them for which we were profusely thanked. We are proud of our children who were passing out leaflets, making and holding signs: April Jakkson, Karen Erickson, Kelly Lab, Willie Saletan, Louie Saletan. Afterwards we all went to a nearby restaurant and had a long hot breakfast banquet with speeches and getting to know each other. The mood was festive. People came from Houston NOW and Huntsville NOW. Peggy Cook took excellent pictures at the demonstration. Sandi Apple, who was just passing through Houston and heard about us, made most of the signs. Freezing on the line were Sonia Doty, Phyllis Tucker, Judi Hoffman, Dorothy Howard, George Monken, Jan Stevens (Texas ERA Chair and Houston ERA Action Team), John Erickson, Aileen Mc Murrer, Patricia Bastidas, Susan Lab, Bob Doughty, Marie Stimson, Jeanne Saletan, Betty Yancey, David Saletan, Nancy Whitecotton, Pat Kuhlmann, Jean Bettencourt, Rusty Richards, Lynn McGregor. on April 23rd at Albert Thomas Convention Center. On their knees were Lee Matous, Jean Stein, Ann Pine, Lynn McGregor, Karen Clark and Jeanne Saletan, wearing her white cowhand hat in readiness for Chicago march and taking head-size orders. Linda Holleman has sent over I67 hand written ERA messages for the ERA Action Team this month and Bonnie Huval typed the entire phone bank list so we can begin farming out work to those who prefer to, write at home. Roberta Blackburn, Wendy Rudnicki,Dana Kelly and Evie W. worked, too.
