Racial & Economic Justice

Equality Utah works to secure equal rights and protections for all LGBTQ Utahns and their families. Accordingly, we support policies that alleviate existing racial and economic disparities. We will oppose policies which perpetuate the existing divide.

Our goal is to promote an economic system that embraces all Utahns – regardless of race, orientation or gender identity.

Here is a PDF that explores the gender-wage gap in Utah.

According to the most recent statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, the median earnings for U.S. women working full time, year-round were just 78 percent of U.S. men’s median earnings—a gap of 22 percent. Progress to close the gap has stalled during the last decade and the gap is even larger for women of color and for moms.
