5 Ways to Take Action on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day

Join us on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, July 27, 2023.

Inequities in pay only exacerbate the compounding oppression of being both Black and a woman in this country. Gender justice must be married to racial justice in order for there to ever be a semblance of equal pay or economic justice.

Here are 5 ways you can uplift Black Women’s Equal Pay Day. Be sure to follow Equal Pay Today on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to amplify the need for pay equity in the workforce.
