We will also be commemorating Equal Pay Day, which is April 4 in 2017. This day is designated annually to reflect how far into the new year women must work to achieve the same amount of pay as men in the previous year. Our primary co-sponsor, the American Association of University Women, is arranging the luncheon talk on Equal Pay.

After lunch attendees will go to Legislative Hall to be present for a press conference and while the General Assembly adopts a resolution commemorating Equal Pay Day.

We will give legislators packets with Position Papers on pending legislative issues

Attendees are encouraged to wear red.
