We are getting the message out and flooding social media with the conversation about the importance of Latina Equal Pay day.

November 2, 2017 is Latina Equal Pay Day.

We are still fighting for our equal pay, the same money white males make today.

Fact: Latinas make 54 cents to one dollar a white male takes home.

How can we have a save for a home, a car or our retirement if we keep getting shorted when it comes to our income.
