Black Women’s Equal Pay Day Twitter Storm Today, Tuesday, August 3!

Among full-time, year-round workers, Black women typically make just 63 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. This disparity has only closed by 3 cents over the last thirty years, which means Black women are not projected to reach equal pay until the year 2130. The wage gap adds up to a typical loss of $24,110 a year and a staggering loss of $964,400 over a 40-year career. It means Black women have to work until August 3 this year to catch up to what white, non-Hispanic men made last year alone. 

Let’s educate the community about these issues! Participate in the Twitter storm on Black Women's Pay Equity Day, today, August 3, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM.

What you need to do: Between 2-3 PM today, log onto Twitter and use the graphic below as well as some of the hashtags.

Contemplative-Based Resilience Project

The Contemplative-Based Resilience Project of the Garrison Institute is an experiential skill-building program that will help you develop practices that enhance and sustain physiological and psychological resilience so that you may “be well to serve well.” 

Anchored by the ABCs of Resilience— Awareness, Balance and Connection—the CBR curriculum includes a toolkit of skills to manage stress and improve self-care, self-awareness, creative thinking and concentration. By equipping professional service providers with skills to cultivate personal resilience, whole communities are strengthened, moving our society toward a resilient future. These program offerings are available to Westchester nonprofit organizations and their staff members at no cost. This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Westchester Community Foundation, a division of The New York Community Foundation.
