We initiate and participate in campaigns to raise awareness about menstrual equity
We amplify others' voices to highlight diverse menstrual health (MH) experiences and approaches to change
We mobilize and equip volunteers and organizations to advance menstrual equity in their home communities
The volunteer hands that sew DfG kits are the same hands that
make phone calls, host gatherings, and build a better future for menstruators in their communities.
We asked everyday people what menstrual health (MH) issues matter most to them, and two things rose to the top:
1. Increased access to free menstrual products
2. Increased access to comprehensive MH education
We hear you, and we're here to help you make it happen.
Here's where to begin....
