Equal Pay Day Bake Sale: Downtown Seattle says
Join MomsRising and our partners at the Economic Opportunity Institute and Legal Voice as we take a bite out of the wage gap together with an #EqualPay Day Bake Sale!

We'll be joined by local leaders to talk about the right recipe for closing the wage gap, including:
-- State Senator Pramila Jayapal
-- State Representative Jessyn Farrell
-- Seattle City Councilmember M. Lorena González
-- Makini Howell, Owner/Chef at Plum Restaurants
-- Roxana Norouzi, Children's Alliance Board of Directors and OneAmerica Education & Integration Policy Director
-- Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, MomsRising CEO/Co-Founder

#EqualPay Day marks the number of extra days into the year that the average woman needs to work in order to earn as much as a man did the year prior. In Washington, women make on average just $0.77 to a man's $1. Women of color and moms see even bigger wage hits.

Smart cookies know that the winning recipe for closing the wage gap includes stronger equal pay laws, living wages, paid sick and family leave, and affordable, high quality early learning and childcare.

We'll have free #EqualPay cookies from Hello Robin and bite-sized ways for you to use a few minutes of your lunch break to help close the wage gap!
