Enlist Corporate Support


Corporate leaders representing companies of all sizes can show their support for constitutional equality and call on the Virginia Assembly to do the same.

HOW TO DO IT

  • Request a supportive corporation to send a letter. Recommended recipients listed below.
  • Download sample letter below, designed for corporate letterhead.
  • Approach the corporation as a nonpartisan organization or private individual. Suggestions for nonpartisan organizations: American Association of University Women (AAUW), Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., League of Women Voters (LWV), and National Organization for Women (NOW).
  • Identify likely allies within the organization and ask to meet with them. Share your request and ask for their support.
  • Let us know when it’s done! We’d love to share your success with other advocates, and build a comprehensive list of support around the state. If a company wants to be listed on our website as having sent a note (with or without a copy of the letter sent), please drop us a line at VAratifyERA@gmail.com
