How to Become a Period Poverty Warrior in 5 Easy Steps
Nadya Eddy (she/her)

8.19.2021

Period poverty is an issue that we are collectively fighting at the local, state, and national level--so we know that getting involved can be overwhelming. That’s why we have put together this toolkit to help you get involved in this movement no matter how big or small!

Main "Not a Pad" image reposted with permission by the artist @jaded.designs on Instagram!

Step 1: Nominate your school to stock August period care!

FILL OUT THIS FORM

Step 2: Sign some petitions for ending the Tampon Tax and Fighting period Poverty

Step 3: Follow some inspiring Instagram accounts

Here are some of our favorite accounts and non profits:

  1. @freeperiods: to stay up to date with the latest news and ways to get involved
  2. @no_moresecrets468: Follow our impact journey by following our non-profit partner
  3. @periodmovement: Follow the largest international period non-profit to stay in the loop
  4. Following the hashtag #periodpoverty on instagram

Step 4: Donate to a period non-profit in your area

It's as easy as typing in "period non profits in my area." Alternatively, you can support August’s non-profit partner No More Secrets: a Philadelphia based mother-daughter duo that delivers period care to those in need. Your donations go to supporting the nation's first ever menstrual hub: The Spot!
