Accessible Period Care is a Fiscally Sponsored grassroots initiative that started in March of 2023 in Union County. We envision Accessible Period Care for All and are on a mission to bring menstrual equity through our Missions and Visions:
Advocating for Inclusion
Choice + Transparency
What is Period Poverty and Menstrual Equity?
Period Poverty is a lack of access to menstrual products, hygiene facilities, waste management and education, affecting 500 Million people. Period poverty causes physical, mental, and emotional difficulties. The stigma surrounding menstruation creates barriers around talking about it. Let's change that. Source
Menstrual Equity: equal and inclusive access to education, safety, and healthy menstrual care products to help remove barriers and stigma around menstruation. Let's make this happen. Source
As of June 2023, we have distributed 11,362 menstrual care products consisting of pads, liners, tampons, and menstrual cups to universities, libraries, community organizations, and schools in order to fight period poverty and advocate for menstrual equity.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us in serving our communities!
