Too many people are missing opportunities because they don’t have access to period products.
Too many people are embarrassed to ask for help, facing additional challenges with cultural differences, gender identity or the stigma associated with having a period.

This is our Period Promise

We want to encourage elected representatives, executives, union leaders, community groups and business owners to sign on to the United Way Period Promise Policy, committing to providing free period products to anyone accessing their facilities.

This is local love in action.
