Equal Rights Advocates 2015

On June 11, 2015, Rachel Abrams, and others from Levin Simes Abrams attended the 2015 Equal Rights Advocates Gala Luncheon—Forging Ahead—where we celebrated ERA’s 41 years of groundbreaking work making sure girls and boys feel safe at school so they can learn effectively, advocating in favor of equal pay for equal work, and taking on sexual harassment in the workplace. The Gala’s Keynote Speaker, Patricia Arquette, is a Wage Equity Champion whose courageous eloquence on the topic of fair pay has advanced discussion on an international stage about how wage inequality harms everyone. ERA also honored BHS Stop Harassing with its Champion of Justice award for the amazing work these students and parents have done to educate an entire community about sexual harassment at school.
