On Tuesday, November 17, the Libraries and OLLI will host “The Equal Rights Amendment,” a virtual event, from 3:30-5 p.m. This event is open to the Mason community, but attendance is limited – please register here to reserve your spot, and a Zoom link will be sent to you prior to the event.

A panel from Mason’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will focus on the pivotal years 1970-82 and share their individual, first-hand experiences lobbying and marching for the Equal Rights Amendment in the Virginia and DC area.

The panel will be moderated by Laura Moore, adjunct faculty with the Department of History & Art History at Mason. The event will be recorded and added to the Special Collection Research Center’s (SCRC) Oral History Program collection.

“The Equal Rights Amendment” marks the fourth annual special oral history collaboration between SCRC and OLLI. The program is funded by a Special Project Grant awarded to the University Libraries by OLLI Mason.
