Radical Activism Discussions

Introducing PERIOD's R.A.D. Book Club!

Thursday July 22, 2021 at 5pm PST | 8pm EST

Join us in discussing "Hood Feminism" by Mikki Kendall for our very first book club discussion.

"Hood Feminism" is a clarion call for the feminist movement to address needs further than those of just mainstream white feminists.

Kendall, an intersectional feminist activist and writer, argues that we must address basic needs like food insecurity and medical care as feminist issues, especially as they intersect with race, class, sexual orientation, and ability.

Book club will be facilitated by PERIOD's Youth Advisory Council.

Save the Date! All are invited to join our 1.5 hour discussion of the book at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST on Thursday, July 22nd.

You can join using the zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85091865834

Voices of the Movement

Celebrating Period Action Day

Period Action Day (PAD) took place on October 10th, a celebration of the many youth activists in the fight against period poverty. Check out our calls to action below, which includes signing our national petition to end period poverty, watching the informative videos and learning about many organizations and activists in the movement

Host a Product Drive

Join us by hosting your own product drive, and encouraging friends, other businesses and organizations to join as well. Leading up to Period Action Day on October 10th, we are asking you to join us in actively collecting and donating period products to people in need in an effort to serve our communities - especially those most affected by COVID-19.

Period Action Day

Last year, PERIOD rallied on National Period Day to raise awareness of period poverty. This year, PERIOD expanded our efforts to a virtual day of celebrating and showcasing the work of menstrual justice activists, empowering youth with resources and tools to make a change in their own communities.

Advocacy Campaigns

Make Your Voice Heard

We have come a long way in the fight for menstrual equity, but we still have a long way to go. 30 states still have a 'Tampon Tax' on period products, considering them non-essential goods. Many states are still fighting to get period products freely accessible in schools, shelters, and prisons. Support these grassroots efforts by signing and sharing the petitions below!
