“Justice You Can Bank On” is the slogan of the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE), which was founded in 1979. NCPE is a coalition of women’s and civil rights organizations; labor unions; religious, professional, legal, and educational associations, commissions on women, state and local pay equity coalitions and individuals working to eliminate sex- and race-based wage discrimination and to achieve pay equity. Their purpose is to close the wage gap that still exists between women, as well as people of color, and men. Pay equity – evaluating and compensating jobs based on their skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions, and not on the people who hold the jobs – is a solution to eliminating wage discrimination and closing the wage gap. Among NCPE's many member organizations is the American Library Association.
