Menstrual Product Accessibility During a Pandemic

Our names are Maggie Di Sanza, Anika Sanyal,  and Amira Pierotti and we are three youth organizers and activists working to make menstrual products freely accessible to all. 

Amid the world's recent pandemic, COVID-19, schools, businesses, public facilities, and places of work have been closing due to public health concerns. 25% of menstruating people in the United States have asserted that they rely on educational institutions, and local businesses to provide period products each month. With the closing of these places, many people are left without menstrual products. At such an unsettled and uncertain time, many community centers have neglected to recognize menstrual products as basic necessities, that are unsafe for people to go without. Period products should be of the same concern as other health products like toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, and soap. We must ensure that everyone who needs them, has access to pads and tampons. 

As global citizens, we must all make sure that everyone around us is healthy and protected, let's take a stand, and urge our community centers and members to protect the health of menstruating people. 

Please donate so we can help local shelters, schools, and health facilities in Wisconsin, provide free menstrual products to those who would otherwise not be able to afford them.

Thank you so much for your generosity and commitment to community assistance and service.
