As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our mission is to dispel myths surrounding menstruation, 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 all people who menstruate to learn about the menstrual cycle and thrive throughout their reproductive years and beyond.
Our organizational model promotes menstrual equity through intergenerational and intercultural community conversations, evidence-based menstrual health education and disease prevention, resource connection, mentorship, and sisterhood-building activities.
