Feel confident and spread the word. Be prepared with a short pitch to spark curiosity and be ready to knowledgeably answer follow-up questions. You’ll have many opportunities to talk about the 28th Amendment (Equal Rights) and why it’s important to you. Make sure you’re ready to make the most of them!
HOW TO DO IT
Have a few “go to” conversation starters:

- 97% of Americans say it is somewhat or very important for women to have equal rights with men in this country

Make it personal:

- Tell a personal story if you have one.
Present a call to action:
