Upcoming Events for Black Women's Equal Pay Day (August 3rd)

Tuesday, August 3rd is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day. Equal Rights Advocates explains that this commemoration falls on August 3rd "[b]ecause it takes the average Black woman, working full-time year-round, 8 extra months to earn what the average white non-Hispanic man earns in 1 year." That is a staggering statistic to absorb. There are many lunchtime (EST) programs tomorrow that dig deeper into discussing this important topic, particularly as it relates to our nation’s COVID-19 recovery plan.  Here is a compilation of free online programming and resources prepared by Equal Rights Advocates.
