Colorado Equal Pay Day 2012

Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 17, 2012. This date symbolizes how far into 2012 women must work to earn what men earned in 2011. The ACLU of Colorado joins with others including 9to5, the Women's Foundation of Colorado and Coloradans for Fair Pay in co-sponsoring two important events for Equal Pay Day 2012.

Wear the color red (to show that women and people of color are still in the red when it comes to pay) and join us at a Daytime Rally at 12:00 pm, April 17, Auraria Campus, Tivoli Commons. 900 Auraria Parkway, Denver.

Then, at 5:30 pm,  April 17, attend an Evening Social at The Living Room. 1055 Broadway, Denver, to celebrate our progress and look forward to realizing our goal of fair pay for all.
