Join the Equal Rights Center's 50/50 Campaign!
Since the ERC's founding nearly 30 years ago, we have celebrated many
victories. People with disabilities have greater access to buildings and
services where physical barriers previously limited their use, Housing

and other individuals who have experienced discrimination have been able to

And we need you!
Our team of civil rights leaders spans areas of expertise including
disability rights, immigrant rights, LGBT rights, women's rights, fair
housing and much more. We use a multi-faceted approach of education,
research, testing, counseling, advocacy and, when necessary, enforcement.
This unique blend of dynamic approaches and specialized focus has made us
highly effective at advocating both for individuals who have faced
discrimination and for the expansion of non-discrimination policies across
The ERC is made up of much more than our staff and Board of Directors. ERC
members are the eyes and ears of the organization by:
Alerting us to existing issues and instances of discrimination;
Participating in ERC civil rights investigations;
Staying informed about civil rights issues; and
Helping to advocate for change.
Our members make our victories more numerous, effective and meaningful.
To grow our team of advocates even more, we have just launched the "50/50
Campaign" to recruit 500 members in 50 days in 50 states and DC!
It's easy to become a member! No financial commitment is required, just a
genuine desire to create positive social change.
Join our movement to advance civil rights for all. Be part of the 50/50
