Join the Fight to End Period Poverty in Schools!
Our chapters have been working at the grassroots level to get period products in their schools. In January we took the fight to the Department of Education with a national petition. Starting on International Women’s day, March 8th we want you to get your U.S. Senators and Representatives involved. Click below to learn what you can do!
Our mission is to end period poverty and period stigma.
We are a group of young activists across the U.S. united by the belief that menstrual care is a basic right.
Nadya Okamoto and Vincent Forand co-founded PERIOD as high school students in 2014 after realizing that menstrual products are not reliably available to those who need them the most. PERIOD is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Now we have a nationwide network of over 300 chapters who are serving their communities.
We’re all about action. With the support of generous partners, sponsors and individuals, we deliver PERIOD PACKS to those in need.
It starts with changing the way we talk about periods. We elevate the issue to eliminate the taboo through a growing network of high school, college and community chapters.
We raise awareness and create change through events, campaigns and media relationships. Help us repeal the tampon tax and lobby for menstrual products in public places.
