Update On Equal Rights Amendment

Lawmakers have placed an Equal Rights Amendment on the ballot this November. While an upstate judge recently blocked the measure on procedural grounds, most legal observers expect that decision to be overturned. The measure states that “No person shall, because of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability creed, or religion, or sex, including sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, pregnancy outcomes, and reproductive healthcare and autonomy, be subjected to any discrimination in their civil rights.” Melanie Trimble of the NY Civil Liberties Union will discuss the proposal on Wednesday, May 22, at 7:00 at the Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Ave., Delmar. She talked to Mark Dunlea of the Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
