VALUE STATEMENT

Menstruation is a natural bodily function. There should be no shame or stigma attached to periods or the methods utilized to take care of one’s needs. Safe, quality period products should be made available and accessible in a non-stigmatizing manner to ALL menstruating individuals in New Jersey.

 

We are working to increase access for vulnerable populations in New Jersey, these include (but is not limited to) students, the homeless and the incarcerated.  Our current efforts are centered around ensuring that period products are available and accessible in a non-stigmatizing manner, free of charge to ALL menstruating individuals in ALL public schools in New Jersey

NJ bill S692 and A3388 would provide access to free menstrual products to all menstruating individuals in NJ public schools.

NJ bill S2844 and A3611 would require ingredients of menstrual products to be listed on package.

 Julienne Cherry, a coalition member talks  about her experience with a client who did not have access to the menstrual products she needed.

 When we learned that women and girls often have to miss work and school because they can’t afford the basic necessities, we were shocked. Can you imagine not being able to go to work because you didn’t have enough toilet paper to properly clean yourself?”
