Prepare Your Elevator Pitch

Feel confident about spreading the word — be prepared with a short pitch that will help spark curiosity, and be able to knowledgeably answer follow-up questions. You’ll have lots of opportunities to tell people why ERA ratification matters and why it’s important to you — make sure you’re ready to make the most of them!


If you have already read the information on the VAratifyERA website under the “Background” tab, here are a number of additional resources to consider! Personal stories and anecdotes are particularly effective, whether it’s your own personal story or a close friend’s. In-depth ERA training with subject matter experts is also available.
