Planning is underway for Rochester’s rally/press conference for Black Equal Pay Day on August 22, 2019. This date symbolizes how far into the year Black women on average must work to earn what white non-Hispanic men earned in the previous year. The fact is (from the NYS Department of Labor) that “Today, Black or African American women are paid the equivalent of 64 cents on the dollar.” To help plan to rally and raise awareness email firstname.lastname@example.org and check back here for details.
What is La Cumbre?
La Cumbre (Spanish phrase meaning "the Summit") is a forum for members of the Greater Rochester Area community and others to meet, discuss, coordinate, facilitate, organize, and collaborate in order to assess and improve the lives of Latinos/Hispanics relating to: Arts & Culture, Economic Development, Education, and Government.
La Cumbre will address critical issues together to influence and focus efforts by making a sustainable impact in our community. Participants volunteer their time to help each other set and achieve common goals aimed at addressing important community issues.
