Partner: Equal Pay Day Coalition

This year’s Black Women’s Equal Pay Day is being observed on Tuesday, August 7th. On that day, at 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET/11:00 am-12:00 noon PT, Equal Pay Today and women's rights, labor and racial justice advocates nationwide will join our Social Media Storm using #BlackWomensEqualPay and #DemandMore. See www.blackwomensequalpayday.org for updates and resources (including graphics).

When compared to White, non-Hispanic men, Black/African American women earn only $.63 (cents) on the $1. This means the typical Black woman must work until August 2018 to be paid what the typical White man was paid at the end of December 2017. Learn more in our Preliminary Toolkit.

We are challenging all who support equal pay for Black women and all women to #DemandMore at work, as a consumer, and at the ballot box.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
 
1st - Spread the word by sharing our Save the Date and Facebook event, and/or creating your own Twitter, Facebook or Instagram post using the graphics found in the Preliminary Toolkit. Scroll below for a sample of those graphics and share with your communications team. Please also forward this email to your partners to help us spread the word!
 
2nd -- If you are an organization, consider serving as an official co-sponsor. Join us using the Black Women's Equal Pay Day Social Media Storm Co-Sponsorship Form. (There is no financial requirement. We will add partners on a rolling basis, but we will begin sharing our list of co-sponsors tomorrow, so please be on the first list.)
 
3rd -- Contribute to the Toolkit by July 31st or let us know about an event you are planning. Submit via the Black Women's Equal Pay Day Event Notice & Toolkit Submissions Form (NOTE: Review the form before drafting materials so you have a sense of what we are looking for.)
 
4th -- Participate on Tuesday, August 7th at 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET/11:00 am-12:00 noon PT using #BlackWomensEqualPay and #DemandMore.

Outing and Online: Conversation with Disability Rights Researcher Kriti Sharma

Outing and Online: Conversation with Disability Rights Researcher Kriti Sharma

Worldwide one billion individuals have a disability. Many people with disabilities experience a range of barriers to education, health care and other basic services and are subjected to violence and discrimination. Many of these human rights abuses are a result of entrenched stigma and a lack of community-based services essential to ensuring their rights, including under the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. How do we change this?

Kriti Sharma is a researcher in the disability rights division at Human Rights Watch. Her research focuses on human rights violations against persons with disabilities worldwide. She has investigated shackling and abuses against people with psychosocial disabilities in Indonesia, the neglect of people with disabilities in the crisis in the Central African Republic, and institutionalization and violence against women and girls with disabilities in India. Kriti holds an MPhil in Development Studies from the University of Cambridge and a BA in International & Comparative Politics, History & Social Sciences with a minor in International Law from the American University of Paris. She speaks Hindi and French.
