A constitutional amendment must be ratified by three fourths of the states to be passed. Over the last 100 years, 37 states have ratified the amendment meaning only one more state needs to ratify it before it could become the 28th amendment to the constitution. Arizona has yet to take up the matter.
“This is a great moment for the City of Flagstaff to have our city council support the ERA and push the Arizona Legislature to hear it,” said Flagstaff resident and ERA activist Jennifer Lefere.
