& Members of the West Florida Delegation-
Dear Members of our State Government:
I'm writing to urge each and every one of you to support the Equal Rights Amendment!
It doesn't matter whether, I am male or female, black or white, rich or poor, old or young, Democrat or Republican, etc., disabled or able, intelligent or ignorant; I believe everyone was born with equal rights and are entitled to them as citizens of this great nation of ours.
I feel if any of you vote against this bill, you would be voting against your own rights, as well as against the rights of all of your Constitutents [sic].
Helen Y. Spera
