Love Your Menses was founded in 2019 in response to the growing menstrual wellness needs of young people. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we promote menstrual equity and build the next generation of leaders by providing an educational, uplifting and supportive space for Black and Brown girls, women, and people who menstruate to learn about menstrual cycle and create equitable public health solutions.
We do this work through evidence based reproductive health and wellness education, STEM youth programming, menstrual product distribution, and mentorship.
Love Your Menses- to be in tune with your menstrual cycle, to advocate for equitable resources & safe spaces to menstruate, to support other people who menstruate, and most importantly, to flow through life unapologetically.
