Moms. In addition to the full or part time work outside the home, they wear many hats: chef, doctor, cleaner, counselor, and now full-time school teacher! But, how often do we think about the impact the many hours of unpaid work has on them economically, or the stress of balancing lower wages, especially for single mothers?
In the era of COVID-19 the cracks in our broken system have exposed and spotlighted that it is time for change. Join us on Mom’s Equal Pay Day to share what programs and legislation you think are needed to support mothers—we want to hear your voice!
Program will include:
- A brief introduction from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research on the economic impact of motherhood, especially now.
- Hear from moms keeping their households together as they worry about the future, and their game changing ideas to flip these circumstances for all of us.
- Speak out in breakout sessions so PowHerNY can add your ideas on what protections and support moms need to succeed!
This is a PowHer the Vote event sponsored by PowHer New York, in partnership with Latina Surge. The conversation will inform our COVID-19 recovery statement.
Please register now so you can be part of this important conversation! Log-in information will be sent 1-hour prior to the event. Registration closes June 3rd at 8:00PM EST.
