March 23, 2018Equal Pay Day is the day that symbolizes how much longer into the following year that women, on average, have to work to earn what white men earned in just 12 months. Equal Pay Day is a good opportunity to talk about the wage gap, how it impacts everyone, what it’s going to take to close the gap, and how we can work on that together. So we’re thrilled to be partnering with local businesses across the country to raise awareness about the wage gap, and we’re very excited that Poor Richard’s and Rico’s Cafe are our partners in Colorado! Join the Equal Pay Day MeetUp, where you’ll have a chance to meet MomsRising staff and members in your area. We'll share opportunities for you to get involved locally with securing equal pay, passing paid family and medical leave, and other campaigns to support working moms and families!
