Advocacy

We aim to advocate for systemic change through policy and legislation regarding menstrual equity. Reaching out to state representatives, canvassing, and lobbying are all important in making period poverty a mainstream issue and one that our legislators will prioritize. As a chapter, you will have the opportunity to stand as the face of PERIOD and advocate for legislative change in your respective state by meeting with state representatives, testifying on these issues, and making your voices heard! Read below to learn more about how you can get more involved in policy change and set up meetings with your state reps!
