On October 19th, National Period Day, there will be rallies in all 50 states mobilizing to elevate the conversation surrounding period poverty, and to call attention to very clear policy demands for freely accessible period products in schools, shelters, and prisons, and an end to the “tampon tax” that still exists in 35 US states. PERIOD @ University of Minnesota along with community partners such as Planned Parenthood, National Council of Jewish Women MN, The Coven, Women’s March MN, Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment, etc. are hosting the National Period Day rally in the state of Minnesota at Northrop Plaza on the U of M campus. This is an inclusive rally. Whether you menstruate or not, all are welcome.
