Join Me in Downtown Bridgeport for Black Women's Equal Pay Day

August 7 is Black Women's Equal Pay Day.

I’ll be marking the day by hosting a “Gender Pay Gap Lemonade Stand” at McLevy Green, Bank Street, Bridgeport on Tuesday, August 7 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The amount of free lemonade poured into each cup will depend on the person’s sex and race, thus representing the disparities in pay throughout Connecticut and the country.

Please join me to help raise awareness! We will have pamphlets for everyone to pass out.

Black Women's Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far black women, on average, must work into 2018 to bring home the same pay as white, non-Hispanic men did in 2017 -- an additional seven months! Equal pay is a drain on our families, businesses, and our economy.

Can’t make it?

Join the Black Women's Equal Pay Day Social Media Storm! Visit my Facebook page on Tuesday, August 7 and share one of my #BlackWomensEqualPay posts to help draw attention to the gender-and race-based pay gaps’ effect on women and families.
