Taking Action With NOW-NYC
Equal Pay Day – Rally & Act
Tuesday, April 4th at 12PM at City Hall
On this years Equal Pay Day, call your Councilmembers and tell them to support Bill 1253. Public Advocate James has proposed a bill that would make it unlawful for employers to ask about a potential employees previous salary. Women, especially women of color, make disproportionately less than men, and thus inquiring about past salary would perpetuate this cycle of economic inequality.
Women’s Town Hall: Speak Up, Speak Out Against Violence
Thursday, April 13 at 6:30PM, YWCA Brooklyn 30 3rd Ave
NOW New York is continuing our own series of Town Halls on violence against women across the state – to amplify the voices of survivors and advocates and to document the vital need for the threatened programs of the Violence Against Women Act.
Sign our petition to demand Trump and Congress protect VAWA’s vital funding.
Resist Week #11: Get In the Know
- Congress voted on Thursday to pass a bill that would allow states to deny Title X grant money to certain clinics. If Trump signs this bill into law, family planning clinics like Planned Parenthood could be denied federal funding – crucial money that allows clinics to cater to women most in need.
- April is sexual assault awareness month. While it may be devastating to have to listen to a President accused of sexual assault pretend to care, NOW-NYC stands with all victims and survivors of sexual assault and rape.
- The Women’s National Hockey Team reached a wage agreement that would give them higher wages and more similar economic advantages that the men’s team was receiving – economic equity win!!
