6 Reasons To Get Involved With National Period Day!
Rolling out for the first time, October 19th was marked the official day of an annual rally/movement, in honor of the world’s first #NationalPeriodDay, created by PERIOD.org.
PERIOD.org and National Period Day were created to bring awareness to the issue of period poverty and to demand real change to make period products more accessible for all. This day of observance was also created to bring an ending the #TamponTax.
PERIOD.org founders, Nadya Okamoto and Vincent Forand, started this nonprofit so that women can get access to the period products they need to feel confident and clean every menstruation cycle, no matter their income. Now it’s the largest youth-run nonprofit in women’s health.
