Equal Pay Day Rally – 4/4/17

Equal Pay Day Chicago is scheduled for Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in Daley Plaza (Clark and Washington) starting at noon.  Rain location is the Daley Center lobby.

Each year, Equal Pay Day is recognized world-wide to bring greater awareness to the wage gap experienced by minorities and women.  In the United States, the mid-April date symbolically marks how far into a new year the average woman must work to earn as much as the average man did in the previous year.

Join us! Equal Pay Day Chicago is both a focal point to raise awareness of pay equality, and a platform for organizations to collaborate across the state.  We invite you to be a part of this effort. Contact us through email or any of the social media platforms below.

In 2016, we were joined by FM Supreme, Women in Comedy, Awesomely Luvvie, Melissa Josephs (Women Employed) and SallyLou Loveman.  Watch last year's event on CAN-TV
