END PEriod Poverty

Join the Massachusetts Menstrual Equity Coalition.

Our MISSION

Founded in 2019, the MA Menstrual Equity Coalition is a group of menstrual activists, advocacy organizations, non profits, businesses, and public servants who've come together to end period poverty statewide. No one should have to choose between food, a roof over their head, their education, and access to menstrual products and yet every day in Massachusetts, menstruators are forced to make exactly that choice.

 

We urge the State Legislature to pass

HD651/SD.748: An Act Relative to Increase Access to Disposable Menstrual Products in Prisons, Homeless Shelters and Public Schools (I AM bill)!

COALITION
STATE of ACCESS in MA

In 2019, Mass NOW distributed the State of Menstrual Access Survey to school nurses, shelter administrators, and Department of Corrections personnel across the state. Mass NOW received responses from 230 schools, all six county correctional facilities, and homeless shelters from all over Massachusetts. The results were clear: period poverty is real and happening daily.

Currently, the MME Coalition is doing outreach for the  2nd State of Menstrual Access survey! Our goal is to understand the needs of menstruators across the Commonwealth to inform our initiatives to increase access to menstrual products. Survey participants enter a giveaway to receive free menstrual products upon completing the survey!
