Let's Get To Work

Be a Part of the Action

With the help of our dedicated network of activists and partner organizations, PERIOD is able to organize several campaigns and events throughout the year. Learn more about our Period Action Day, State of the PERIOD, policy boot camps, and state advocacy petitions below!

Microgrant Program

We recently launched a pilot Microgrant Program to provide youth activists with an opportunity to request funding for their grassroots efforts in the menstrual equity and period poverty space.

The applications for this program are reviewed by PERIOD’s Youth Advisory Council, and the funds are distributed every month after the committee meets. This program will be re-evaluated and potentially grown into a larger program in December 2021.


*You do NOT need to be a PERIOD chapter to apply for funding!

*We cannot provide grants to international organizations & chapters but are working hard to expand this program globally!

Voices of the Movement

Celebrating Period Action Day

Period Action Day (PAD) took place on October 10th, a celebration of the many youth activists in the fight against period poverty. Check out our calls to action below, which includes signing our national petition to end period poverty, watching the informative videos and learning about many organizations and activists in the movement

Host a Product Drive

Join us by hosting your own product drive, and encouraging friends, other businesses and organizations to join as well. Leading up to Period Action Day on October 10th, we are asking you to join us in actively collecting and donating period products to people in need in an effort to serve our communities - especially those most affected by COVID-19.

Period Action Day

Last year, PERIOD rallied on National Period Day to raise awareness of period poverty. This year, PERIOD expanded our efforts to a virtual day of celebrating and showcasing the work of menstrual justice activists, empowering youth with resources and tools to make a change in their own communities.

Advocacy Campaigns

Make Your Voice Heard

We have come a long way in the fight for menstrual equity, but we still have a long way to go. 30 states still have a 'Tampon Tax' on period products, considering them non-essential goods. Many states are still fighting to get period products freely accessible in schools, shelters, and prisons. Support these grassroots efforts by signing and sharing the petitions below!
