This year, Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, the day that marks how long Black women have to work to catch up to what white, non-Hispanic men made at the end of last year, landed on September 21.

Community Change Communications Fellow Ayanna Albertson (TikTok @untouchableyann) breaks down what these days mark and why the confrontation about the wealth gap is real. The good news? We can do something about it by registering to vote and bringing our loved ones along with us in November. Let’s go!
