The Period Project provides education to schools, shelters, churches and community leaders.
The lack of access to menstrual hygiene products is often a misunderstood or an utterly unknown issue in the United States. Menstrual hygiene products are necessities but are not available in many schools, shelters, and communities to menstruators and students in need.
The Period Project works with school nurses and principals to create an understanding of the pressing issue. Menstrual hygiene products are one of the least donated items to and shelters causing more shame for the person already struggling with homelessness.
In 30 of 50 United States, these products are taxed. In addition to providing education, we also work as advocates in our community and to our legislators.
Help us deliver information.
We need volunteers to help educate communities, schools, churches, and civic organizations about the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products for underprivileged and the adverse effect it has on our states and counties.
Please help us provide this critical information and continue increasing knowledge, decreasing prejudice, and ridding the world of the social stigma that still clings to a healthy human function: menstruation.
