EQUAL PAY DAY SANTA FE – 4/4/17

Equal Pay Day Santa Fe

When:  Tuesday, 4/4/17 12-1pm

Where:  Santa Fe Plaza

Hosted by Women’s March on Washington Santa Fe

Women’s March on Washington Santa Fe believes in equal pay for equal work regardless of gender, color, orientation, or beliefs.

Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.

In 2015 Hispanic women earned 54% of what their white male counter parts earned, African American women earned 63%, white women earned 75% and Asian women earned 85% of what their white male counterparts earned (AAUW).

April 4th represents the approximate day that women must work to in the current year to make the same amount of money men did in the previous year.

WMWSF will be supporting this cause by holding a rally, co-sponsored by WMWSF, Pre-K for Santa Fe and IATSE 480, at the Santa Fe Plaza on Tuesday, April 4th from 12:00 – 1:00pm. Various speakers including Mayor Javier Gonzales, Pre-K for Santa Fe organizer Danila Zidovsky, City Councilwoman Renee Villarreal, Sarah Ghiorse withNewMexicoWomen.org, Jeanne Patrick with American Association of University Women (AAUW) Santa Fe, Lina Germann with STEM Santa Fe, and Anthropologist Elly Power with The Santa Fe Institute will present about pay equality and ways to positively effect the gender pay gap for women in the workforce.

“In person absentee vote” for Pre-K for Santa Fe at City Hall before or after the event and you will be eligible for validated free parking at The Convention Center.

IATSE 480 will provide sack lunches!

Wear RED on Equal Pay Day Santa Fe to symbolize women being “in the red” in regards to pay equality and to emphasize the visual effect of our message.

SPANISH TRANSLATION:
El grupo Women’s March on Washington Santa Fe(WMWSF por sus siglas en inglés) cree en la igualdad salarial por igual trabajo sin importar género, raza y color, orientación sexual o sus creencias.

Día de Igualdad Salarial (Equal Pay Day) originó a través del Comité Nacional en Igualdad Salarial (NCPE por sus siglas en Inglés) en 1996 como un evento de concienciación publica para demostrar la diferencia entre los salarios de los hombres y los salarios de mujeres.

En 2015, mujeres Hispanas ganaban el 54% de lo que ganaron sus compañeros masculinos. Las mujeres Afro-Americanas ganaron el 63%, mujeres de raza blanca ganaron un 75% y mujeres Asiáticas ganaron 85% del salario de sus compañeros masculinos. (Estadísticas de American Association of University Women, AAUW por sus siglas en Inglés).

El 4 de abril simboliza los mas de cuatro meses del año que tienen que trabajar algunas mujeres para poder alcanzar lo que los hombres ganaron durante el año anterior.

La organización estará apoyando esta causa por medio de una manifestación co-patrocinada por WMWSF, Pre-K for Santa Fe y IATSE 480. La manifestación se llevara a cabo en la Plaza de Santa Fe el martes 4 de abril de 12 a 1 de la tarde. Tendrá oportunidad de escuchar varios discursos por medio del Alcalde Javier Gonzales, la organizadora del programa Pre-K for Santa Fe Danila Crespin-Zidovsky, un representante de NewMexicoWomen.org, Jeanne Patrick, representante de AmericanAssociation of University Women (AAUW) Santa Fe, Lina Germann con STEM Santa Fe, la antropóloga Elly Power del Santa Fe Institute y otros, quienes presentarán discursos sobre la igualdad salarial y sobre maneras de afectar de manera positiva, la brecha salarial para las mujeres en sus empleos.

Tendrá oportunidad de “votar por correspondencia en persona” antes o después en el Palacio Municipal. También será elegible para obtener estacionamiento validado gratis en el Centro de Convenciones.

IATSE 480 proporcionara alimentos.

Pongase algo ROJO el Día de Igualdad Salarial de Santa Fe para simbolizar que la mujer esta “in the red”, frase en inglés que significa números positivos con respecto a la igualdad salarial y también para poder enfatizar el efecto visual de nuestro mensaje.
