YWCA Northeast Indiana to Host Rally in Recognition of Equal Pay Day
On Tuesday, April 8, at 9:00 am, YWCA Northeast Indiana will be hosting an Equal Pay Day Rally at its 1610 Spy Run Avenue office in Fort Wayne. This date signifies how far into 2014 women have to work to earn the same level of income that men earned in 2013. Each year on this day, the YWCA Northeast Indiana sponsors an event to stress the importance of closing the pay gap. This year, we will be joined by representatives from AAUW, the League of Women Voters, Hope House, and the Women’s Bureau.

More information on this event and pay equity in Fort Wayne can be found at https://www.facebook.com/PayEquityFortWayne.
Additionally, that day YWCA Northeast Indiana will be at the Main Branch of the ACPL participating in the Money Fair, as a part of Money Smart Week. There, we will have a vendor table to supply the public with information on pay equity.

For more information or materials regarding Equal Pay Day or pay equity, please contact YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Public Awareness Coordinator, Sydney McKerr, at smckerr@ywcaerew.org or (260) 424-4908 ext.287. You can also find out more by visiting our website at www.ywca.org/NEIN.
