Too many young girls, other vulnerable youth and caregivers are missing opportunities because they don’t have access to period products. Too many people are embarrassed to ask for help, and many people face additional challenges when you consider the cultural differences, gender identity or simply the stigma associated with having a period at all.
YOU CAN TAKE PART IN SEVERAL WAYS:
You can give financially, or donate period products. You can also organize Period Promise campaigns to collect donations in your community or workplace.
The Period Promise campaign also encourages elected representatives, executives, union leaders, community groups and business owners to sign on to the United Way’s Period Promise Policy, committing to providing free period products to anyone accessing their facilities when it is safe to do so.
However you choose to participate, you can reduce vulnerability and isolation caused by period poverty. Together, we can help people live with the dignity we all deserve, creating healthier, more caring and inclusive communities.
This is local love in action.
This is our Period Promise.
