The purpose of PERIOD is to end period poverty and stigmatization through service, education, and advocacy. We also teach students about women’s rights and health through educational workshops and seminars. Our mission is to make a great difference in women's health and to improve the quality of life for their families.
What we Do
John F. Kennedy High School PERIOD chapter’s focus is to serve menstruators in local marginalized communities by distributing tampons, pads, and menstrual cups; running educational workshops to change the way people think, talk, and learn about women; and fighting for systemic change towards menstrual equity. We work to eliminate period poverty, taboos, and stigma by advocating for equity!
