The Missouri ERA Coalition Records document the Coalition's efforts to get the ERA ratified in the Missouri Senate. The collection contains budgets, bylaws, campaign strategies, correspondence, funding requests, local fundraising material, meeting minutes, literature from workshops and rallies, conference notices, newsletters, newspaper clippings, and papers. The bulk of the collection chronicles the Coalition's development of grassroots support from 1977-1982, in particular, canvassing activities (caravan, phone bank, house party kits, letter writing, and lobbying instructions).
