End Period Poverty in the Beaverton School District

In 21st century America, schools have an obligation to serve all students equitably. Every student deserves the reassurance that their school restrooms are outfitted with necessities to accommodate their biological needs. Yet, for roughly half the US student population, there is a glaring exception to this commitment: menstrual hygiene products.

Menstrual hygiene products are basic necessities, and the inability to access them affects a student’s freedom to study, be healthy, and participate in society with dignity. Studies have shown that when students lack access to menstrual hygiene products they skip or miss class, face embarrassment or objectification because of period stains, and are limited both academically and socially.

Together we can end period poverty and achieve menstrual equity.

Join PERIOD. at Arts and Communication Magnet Academy in taking action to ensure that all students are provided free and easy access to period products — because no one should have to miss out on an education because of their period.
