Lunch Briefing | "We Persist: Legal and Policy Strategies for Equal Pay & Women's Economic Security in the United States"
Equal pay for women has never been more popular than it is today. Yet, nearly 55 years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act and nearly a decade after the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, never has achieving actual pay equity seemed more out of reach. Equal Pay Today! -- an innovative collaboration of women’s and workers’ rights organizations working at the state, regional, and national level -- is seeking to make equal pay for women a reality by building a groundswell of state and local wins over the next two years that will build toward federal wins that women and families can feel. On Wednesday, May 24 at 12:30 - 2:00 pm, strategic philanthropists are invited to a briefing and conversation with two of Equal Pay Today!'s New York State leaders -- Lenora Lapidus, Director of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project and Dina Bakst, Executive Director of A Better Balance -- on legal and policy strategies for closing the gender wage gap and ensuring women's economic security in the United States. A light lunch will be served.
Please RSVP by May 19th to firstname.lastname@example.org and to receive the location.
