The I AM Bill
Have you ever noticed the lack of public access to menstrual products?
Non-menstruating people go into the bathroom expecting their basic bodily needs will be met. This is not the case for people who are menstruating.
If you are a student or resident of MA you can help make these products more accessible throughout your state.
Introducing the I AM Bill. If passed, the I AM Bill would provide free menstrual products to all 6th-12th graders in Massachusetts schools, shelters, and prisons. The bill also contains language ensuring that individuals seeking these products are never stigmatized for doing so.
But to do this, we need your help. Join Mass NOW and the MME Coalition, advocate for the I AM bill, sign the petition, download the toolkit, and submit your testimony.
Now, more than ever, it’s becoming increasingly important to invest in public health. No one should have to choose between food, a roof over their head, education, and access to menstrual products.
Yet public policy does not address the needs of menstruating people.
With your help, Massachusetts has the opportunity to change that.
