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.
