Rhode Island girls and women miss days of school and work every month because they cannot afford the menstrual products they need. No one should have to live in period poverty. All women deserve to have:

Dignity - No one should feel ashamed because they can’t afford vital period products. Women deserve the dignity that comes with reliable menstrual care.

Safety - No one should have to resort to using unsafe materials and methods that can cause health problems. Lack of access to reliable products is a health concern.

Empowerment - No one should feel burdened by their period – they should feel empowered. It’s time to smash the taboo and advocate for each other about periods and the menstrual cycle.

The Rhode Island Coalition of Labor Union Women, with the support of  the Rhode Island Federation of Teachers and Health Professionals, Teamsters Local 251, and the Rhode Island AFL-CIO, is launching our #HelpASisterOutPeriod campaign, to raise awareness for women who lack the financial means to purchase menstrual products. We’re hosting our 1st Annual Menstrual Equity Drive to collect products and monetary gifts.

You can use this GoFundMe page to donate money to our campaign and share it with others through social media to spread the word. 100% of the proceeds will be used to collect menstrual period products for girls and women in need.
