Latinas in the US earn 54 cents for every dollar that white men earn.
“We joined forces with the Círculo Creativo USA to look for ways in which everyone can act for #latinaequalpayday,” said Claudia Romo Edelman within the framework of the We Are All Human summit at the United Nations in New York.
The initiative consists of the printing of a dollar bill made in proportion to the size in which Latinas are paid. In addition, a video was made where the bill is presented in various businesses where Hispanic women work to raise awareness about this injustice.
Romo invited the audience to take photos with the bill and upload them to their social networks, and create a network to support this cause.
