  1. Consider wearing something or standing/seating by something that shows you are living abroad – for example a foreign newspaper, translation dictionary, map, typical item from country, or outside at a recognizable place in your country.  However, don’t worry about it – just a blank wall is fine.
  2. Do NOT wear or say anything partisan.  Almost all Dems support ERA so trying to win the Rep vote.
  3. Please show some passion but avoid/limit profanity.
  4. Start with “I’m an American living in {country name}”.   You can also use city name if it is one all Americans would recognize, like London, Paris, Tokyo.
  5. If you live in a country that has equal rights for women in the constitution, especially if in some non-European country, mention that. 
  6. If you are from one of the 13 states (AR, AL, AZ, GA, NC, SC, VA, FL, MS, MO, OK, UT, LA) that have not ratified the ERA, you may want to mention that.  Note that Virginia, North Carolina, and Arizona are the top 3 targets right now.
  7. For Virginia, you may want to call out Speaker Cox since he is the current ‘gatekeeper’ that could cause it to stall and never get to the Virginia House floor.
  8. Ask for ERA support.
  9. Keep video to less than 60 seconds, ideally 45 seconds.
  10. If you post the video on Facebook or Instagram, please add hashtags #DAforERA , #EqualMeansEqual and #VAratifyERA
  11. Send a link to the video to era@democratsabroad.org
