Join The Walls Project in igniting change by supporting our upcoming mural on Equal Pay for Equal Work, which addresses the 9th Driver of Poverty. This mural is an artistic depiction highlighting our state’s ranking as 51st in gender pay equity, and a call to action in our justice system for a law requiring equal pay for equal work.
Louisiana has no Equal Pay Act, no law on the books to require that men and women be paid equally for equal work, which they are not. For every dollar a man makes, a white woman makes $0.69, while an African American woman makes $0.48,
and a Latina makes $0.52.
By donating to the #ONEROUGE fundraiser, you will be serving our organization’s many facets in a direct way. With your support, not only are you helping to raise awareness and promote change in our justice system for this driver of poverty, but you are also contributing to our many community outreach programs that grant underserved youth and local communities opportunities to escape the cycle of poverty.

The mural design by the talented Baton Rouge artist, Ellen Ogden, will be fully revealed throughout the month of December on MAPP Construction's building, Downtown Baton Rouge.
