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.
Check out the 2023-2024 Equal Pay Policy Agenda to see how we’re tackling workplace pay inequality head-on.
