Please join the Michigan Equal Pay Coalition for the 2019 Equal Pay Lobby Day!

Governor Whitmer, state legislators, a representative from U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s office, and others will be featured presenters to give us updates on state and federal efforts. Twenty-two bills to strengthen Michigan’s equal pay laws will be introduced that day. After a box lunch, we will visit targeted legislative offices to distribute information about Michigan’s pay gap and how legislation could help to narrow it.

Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 – The anniversary of Michigan’s ratification of the federal Equal Rights Amendment in 1972
Registration Opens: 9:30 a.m.
Event Begins: 10:00 a.m.

We will be meeting targeted legislators in their offices after lunch and then returning to the church to wrap up at 2 p.m.

Parking is available in parking ramps located on Shiawassee and Capitol or metered street parking.
