October 19th marks first-ever #NationalPeriodDay and @nadyaokamoto is the founder behind @periodmovement, an organization hosting rallies in all 50 states, demanding menstrual equity and #tampontax. Why? Because no one should have to miss school or work because they can't afford menstrual products - this is period poverty and it must end. Menstrual care is not a luxury, it is a necessity and we stand behind Nadya, PERIOD and everyone else fighting in this movement.
What can you do?
Join @periodmovement at one of their rallies.
Wear red in solidarity.
Speak out on social media using #endthetampontax and tagging @periodmovement.
