THE EQUAL PAY ACT

Members of the Iota Gamma Omega Chapter witnessed the signage of two very important bills by Governor Larry Hogan. The Equal Pay Act, which will close the pay gap between men and women and ensure women are paid the same as men . This will help to end discrimination based on gender but will also allow women to take care of themselves and their families. The Justice Reinvestment Act was also signed which will help to reduce mass incarceration especially for non-violent felons. This is historic legislation and we are proud to be at the forefront impacting generations to come.
