Dear Governor Graham:

Thank you for your support of the Equal Rights Amendment. Without this constitutional amendment, women will continue to be discriminated against in the market place and in the courts.

We are so close; I am trying not to give up hope. Please speak up for the amendment often in the next few days, and help us persuade the Florida Senate to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and make human rights consistent for men and women throughout the country.

All citizens need to be guaranteed equality in this great land of ours. It is not enough to support human rights in other countires. America will be greater if men and women share rights and responsibilities.

Thank you for listening to a concerned voter
