Plan to join a Black/African American Equal Pay Day rally and press conference at 11:45 AM on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at Workers United 750 East Avenue 14607 (enter building in rear). According to the NEW YORK STATE Department of Labor, “Today, Black or African American women are paid the equivalent of 64 cents on the dollar." You read that right, 64 measly cents. Work with us to improve that on August 22 by amplifying our call for change!
Location: Group TBD with community groups on East Avenue @ Sibley Place find the Pay Equity Coalition
Date: Monday, September 3, 2018
Time: Arrive between 9:30 A.M. - 10:30 A.M. Parade begins at 11am
