Latina Equal Pay Day is November 20, 2019. This date represents how far into the year Latina women on average must work to earn what white non-Hispanic men doing substantially the same work earned in the previous year.

"The pay and hiring discrimination that women, particularly mothers, women of color, Indigenous women, lesbian, queer and trans women still face each day in our nation, as well as discrimination against workers with disabilities, is atrocious and must end. Equal pay for equal work will provide families with upward mobility and boost the economy.”
—Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Join Rochester speakers, community leaders and advocates to rally for pay equity for Latinas and all other women.
According to the NEW YORK STATE Department of Labor, the gap is substantially wider for women of color in New York as compared to white, non-Hispanic men, “Latina women are paid 55 cents on the dollar." You read that right, 55 measly cents. Work with us on November 20 by amplifying our call for change!
