As you know, PERIOD’s mission is to end period stigma and poverty! An incredible tool for fighting stigma is education; by spreading good, factual, and healthy information, we can debunk myths, encourage people to speak up about their experience with periods, and help people advocate for their own health! Read more below to find out about how PERIOD National helps YOU educate your community through workshops and other events!

The Rag is back just in time to share all of your post-election thoughts, feelings, and stories. This publication is an extension of PERIOD that hopes to provide menstruators and non-menstruators with a platform to contribute to the menstrual movement through personal narratives and essays. We believe that the most powerful forms of advocacy include stories by those who are most affected and on the front lines of menstrual equity. We also understand that periods lead to larger conversations about the world around us and encourage you to write about that. If you are itching to share your experience with period poverty, make a call to action, or speak to your experience as a young activist, then we are the platform for you!
