Event Description

Join us on Tuesday, April 12, as we mark Equal Pay Day with a block party outside AAUW’s national office.
Equal Pay Day marks the symbolic day when women’s pay finally “catches up” to men’s pay from the previous year. Join AAUW as we gather together to hear pep talks from equal pay experts and enjoy a VERY wallet-friendly cash bar and food truck munchies!
