Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, August 22, 2019
On August 22, 2019, join Equal Rights Advocates and Equal Pay Today! in raising awareness for Black Women’s Equal Pay Day.
Black Women’s Equal Pay Day marks the day into the year that Black women must work to earn what white, non-Hispanic men made in the year prior. Meaning, Black women must work nearly 20 months more to earn what men made in 12.
On August 22, we will be raising awareness by taking part in a social media storm. At 11:00 PT/2:00 ET flood social media with stats and graphics that show the disparity experienced by Black women.
Check out the toolkit, which has all the graphics and tweets you need, by visiting Equal Pay Today!

A Stronger California Advocates Network Advocacy Day, August 28, 2019
Join Stronger CA and Equal Rights Advocates on August 28, 2019 at the Capitol in Sacramento for an Advocacy Day!
The Stronger California Advocates Network is a collaboration of over fifty organizations and advocacy coalitions from around the state working to promote policy reform to improve the economic security of women and families in California. Together, we will be advocating for bills to advance equal pay, lactation accommodations, child care, and predatory lending, as well as to fight poverty-related car towing practices.
The Stronger California Advocates Network, in collaboration with the California Asset Building Coalition, will schedule visits with legislators and holding advocacy trainings so you’re prepared. Plus, there will be food!
It is crucial that elected leaders hear directly from their constituents that women’s economic security must be made a top priority. Please join us in the morning at 9:30 am at Area 22, which is at the corner of 12th Street and L Street (see map) for a welcome and overview of the bills. We’ll then transition into lobby groups for our legislative visits in the morning and afternoon until 4pm. Lunch will be provided at noon.
