National Period Day Rally

October 19, 2019 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

October 19, 2019 is the date for rallies in all 50 states in honor of the world’s first #NationalPeriodDay — elevating the issue of period poverty and demanding real change to making period products more accessible for all and ending the #TamponTax. 35 US States still have a sales tax on period products considering them non-essential items. 1 in 4 women struggle to afford period products due to a lack of income. In the first city-wide study on period poverty, it was found that  46% of low-income women had to choose between a meal and period products. The October rally brings much-needed awareness to this issue. This is an inclusive rally; EVERYONE is welcome regardless of whether they menstruate!
