Join the Equal Pay Day Coalition in Lansing for a day of action. Rally on the capitol steps at 12:30 p.m. The gender pay gap is a grim reality for working women in Michigan who are paid just 74 centers for every dollar a man is paid. The affects of the pay gap are even worse for African American women (63 cents) and Latinas (59 cents).

On March 30, Vice-President Mike Pence broke a tie vote in the Senate, allowing states to block funding for family planning clinics that also provide abortions. Michigan legislators are already fighting to pass laws that will cut this crucial funding. The facts: -The Hyde Amendment already prevents federal dollars from funding abortion services. -Clinics like Planned Parenthood are not a line item in the government’s budget. They are reimbursed through Medicaid. -When clinics are prevented from receiving funding through Medicaid, low-income men and women are prevented from receiving vital preventative health services. -Health care costs will actually go up to cover unplanned pregnancies, cancer, STIs, and other preventable conditions. -Women will lose control over their bodies and their economic freedom. -This is an ineffective attempt to stop abortions that actually hurts the people of Michigan and our economy. Stand with the Women Organize Michigan at the Michigan State Capitol to stand up for women’s health. We’ll send a powerful message to our lawmakers that we won’t let them take away our rights and harm our families and economy in the process.

Find out more information about the March on Lansing at www.marchonlansing.org! Follow us on Twitter! https://twitter.com/MarchOnLansing We will hold a rally on the steps of the capitol, with speeches by public figures and some musical performances as well. We had initially hoped to march, but that turned out to be cost prohibitive. So instead we are symbolically marching from all corners of Michigan to gather at the capitol and demonstrate. The goal of this event is to be all inclusive-- it will be a peaceful demonstration in opposition to the wave of hate crimes and violence, and threats of official discrimination that have prolifierated following the election. Allies from any religion, of any race, of all sexual orientations and genders, and of all abilities will stand together as a united front. We want to be clear that we won't tolerate any sexism, bigotry, racism, hate, or intolerance from our elected officials. We are for a Michigan that respects and protects all its citizens, that celebrates diversity and nurtures the human potential in each of us. This will be a sister event to the Women's March on Washington.
