We are committed to breaking the period taboo and ensuring Black and Brown girls, women, and people who menstruate have healthy menstrual cycles and become agents of change in their communities. We do this work through evidence-based menstrual health education, intergenerational and intercultural community conversations, resource connection, mentorship, and sisterhood-building activities.
We install free period product dispensers at local schools, shelters, and community organizations.
We partner with communities to provide equitable and sustainable menstrual education and period products in the U.S., Liberia, Gambia, Nigeria, Haiti, Kenya, and Sao Tome and Principe.
A youth program designed to empower girls and young women to understand, embrace, and love their menstrual cycles.
Sustainable and Empowerment Workshop (S.E.W) trains communities on how to design and sew their own reusable menstrual products
Every year, we host our signature Love Your Menses event in Boston, MA to convene girls and women and facilitate intergenerational conversations about reproductive health.
We facilitate monthly period conversations led by Black and Brown physicians and public health professionals for adults discussing all things related to reproductive health, such as fibroids, endometriosis, menopause, PCOS, vaginal care, period pain, skin care, endocrine disrupting chemicals in beauty products, and more.
Love Your Menses’ Menstrual & Mental Wellness Retreat is a safe and healing space for girls and their parents/guardians to rest, engage in meaningful dialogue about reproductive health, mental health, share period stories, build sisterhood, prioritize their wellness, and get access to the resources they need to
flow through life, unapologetically!
