The Alice Paul Institute, a not-for-profit corporation based at Paulsdale in Mount Laurel, NJ, was founded in 1984 as the Alice Paul Centennial Foundation. This group of dedicated volunteers purchased and preserved Paulsdale, Alice Paul's birthplace. The API's principal mission is to enhance public awareness of the life and work of Alice Paul (1885-1977), woman suffrage leader and author of the Equal Rights Amendment. The organization also promotes gender equality through education, development, and empowerment of young women leaders.
The National Council of Women's Organizations is a non-partisan network of over 200 organizations representing more than 12 million women and men. The NCWO was established by leading women's organizations after the 1982 deadline for ERA ratification passed, in order to increase effective communication and collaborative action among the groups. Affiliates include the country's leading women's research, service, and advocacy organizations, which work for women's equal participation in the economic, social, and political life of the United States and the world. The NCWO's ERA Task Force was established in 1999.
