MMSD Campaign

We are calling on the Madison Metropolitan School District to fulfill their promises of equity and inclusion by protecting the health and safety of their menstruating students. For far too long, MMSD has not adequately served students who menstruate, by forcing them to miss class time to find period products, go to the restroom that does not align with their gender identity, or be the brunt of judgement from their peers. This ends today. 

We DEMAND that MMSD...

  • Provide quality, free menstrual products (pads and tampons) in all restrooms and locker rooms in all middle and high schools.

    • This includes men's and gender neutral restrooms. 

  • Ensure that said menstrual products are regularly refilled, every other day, if not daily, depending on the needs of the school.

  • Address menstrual equity in the 2021-2022 Budget.
