Equal Pay Act Anniversary Lobby Day
The AAUW Action Fund recognized the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act on June 10 with a lobby day that brought 75 fair pay advocates and children to the Hill. Following a press conference with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Reps. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), Joaquin Castro (D-TX), and Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), the AAUW Action Fund Capitol Hill Lobby Corps led the group of advocates in visiting 46 congressional offices to ask members of Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.
