Labor Day parades and marches are far more than trumpet and drums: They are calls to action. On this Labor Day, Sept.3, we are calling on elected officials and candidates running for office to publicly support Pay Equity for women of color and to join us in preparing for rallies this Latina Equal Pay Day in November, Equal Pay Day in April, and next Black Equal Pay Day in August.

Later Event: September 23
2019 Native American Equal Pay Day
