CSRC Cohosts Latina Equal Pay Day Event at UCLA

On October 5, the CSRC, the UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Institute (LPPI), and a coalition of advocacy groups hosted a Latina Equal Pay Day event on UCLA campus. The program showcased latest findings from LPPI revealing the persistent wage gap that Latinas face. The event was part of Latina Futures, 2050 Lab, an initiative led by the CSRC and LPPI to investigate Latinas’ experiences in the labor market, their participation in civic leadership, and their well-being. California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, a champion of the California Equal Pay Pledge, provided remarks.
