What is the Coalition Against Period Poverty?
The Coalition Against Period Poverty works on assuring that all menstruators have free and dignified access to menstrual products in schools, shelters, jails, and public facilities. Flow Justice, a sub-committee of CAPP, provides access to menstrual hygiene products and educates youth and adults on menstrual health, access, and equity.
Our Mission & Vision
The mission of CAPP is to end the shame and stigma surrounding periods, as well as to make period products more affordable and accessible. Talking about periods and ending the taboos that surround them, means that we can better equip every menstruator with the products and information they need to manage their periods effectively, without shame or embarrassment.
