This year, ERA’s national project Equal Pay Today! is partnering with coalition members to raise awareness around the lack of wage gap data for LGBTQIA+ communities. On Wednesday, June 16, we will highlight the disparities LGBTQIA+ communities face when it comes to housing, poverty, and general scarcity.
Join us to raise awareness about the wage gap experienced by LGBTQIA+ folks and its disproportionate impact on LGBTQIA+ people of color. We will also be exploring how pay discrimination shows up in workplace and the impacts of COVID-19. This Awareness Day is part of the Pride Week of Action, which you can find more information about here.
Raise awareness about #LGBTQIAEqualPay with us in two ways Wednesday, June 16:
- Join the Twitterstorm at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET
Use the hashtags #LGBTQIAEqualPay and #CountUsIn to help us raise awareness about the wage gap and its impact on LGBTQIA+ communities. Use the social media toolkit linked above to engage in a robust online dialogue with advocates and community members across the nation.
- Post a 10-15 second video in support of #LGBTQIAEqualPay
During the Twitterstorm, we encourage you to post a 10-15 second video of yourself as either a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or an ally/supporter. Mention why equal pay matters for LGBTQIA+ communities, and hold up a handwritten sign that says #CountUsIn. If you identify as an ally, feel free to add #Ally to your sign! When you post the video, make sure to tag @equalpay2dayorg and @equalrightsadv!
