COVID-19 VIRTUAL CAMPAIGN
In addition to our community relief and service project, the Bleed Shamelessly Team is collaborating with the James Madison Memorial High School Gender Equity Association and launching a virtual campaign working to promote gender inclusivity and menstrual equity. Each week, we will focus on a different aspect of menstrual equity, from period poverty, to the tampon tax, to eco-friendly products, and release informative toolkits, and host an exciting and engaging event for anyone to participate in!
April 27th- May 1st
For the first week, we will be focusing on period poverty, its impact, and what we can all do to help those suffering from it. Read our toolkits and resources, and prepare to join us for a Kahoot and Zoom all about period poverty to spark dialogue, conversation, and ask questions!
Join the Kahoot!
On Friday, May 1st, at 3:00pm Central Time, the team will be hosting a Zoom Kahoot for anyone to join! Want to chat with us to learn more about period poverty?
May 4th to May 8th!
For the second week, we will be exploring the world of sustainable period products and menstruation, through investigating menstrual cups, cloth pads, period underwear, and organic, plastic-free, single-use pads and tampons. Watch our informative video and join our panel!

For week #3 we are focusing on how menstruation impacts people's educations around the world. For many people, a lack of access to period products can force them out of an education, leading to a lack of independence, greater financial instability, and political and career insecurities.
