Protest is the new brunch!
Join us at Ocotillo for coffee, mimosas, and our official monthly meeting of activism! In spirit of babes helping babes, we will be assembling 'period packs' filled with feminine products for low-income and homeless girls with Go With The Flow. Because for many students in our community, after their parents pay rent and utilities and buy groceries, there is nothing to spare. Girls feel guilty asking, so they ration the pads and tampons they do get, not changing them as often as they should, or wad up toilet paper or paper towels in their underwear. They worry about staining their clothes, which makes it hard to pay attention in class. Some stay home those days rather than risk it. We think that's total bullshit, so we will be putting pen to paper and writing to our school boards to urge them to add funding to their budgets to cover these essential supplies for all girls.
We will also be joined by girlboss and uber-babe, Channel Powe, an elected Governing Board Member and Maricopa County Transportation Advisory Board Member, the Founder of Powe Power, and now a candidate for Downtown Justice of The Peace, and Anita For Arizona, a Chaparral and ASU graduate, former Deputy Director of ASU’s Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism and COO of marketing tech startup, ClearVoice, and candidate for Congress in Arizona's 6th District.
*In an effort to support as many babes as we can, we kindly ask that you bring a donation of tampons, pads, or new, small zippered pouches. For more info about donations, check this out: https://www.facebook.com/GoWiththeFlowAZ/
Go With The Flow is an initiative that provides menstrual hygiene products to students in the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas via free "period packs". The packs contain tampons and sanitary napkins, as well as a resource card for Spot On, an application which helps its users keep track of their periods. The Go With The Flow initiative has provided period packs to schools in the Phoenix Union, Tucson Unified, Buckeye Union, and Glendale Union High School Districts. When students in these districts are in need, they are able to approach various school staff to discreetly obtain a supply of hygiene products. On a monthly basis schools, as needed, will be able to contact Go With The Flow to replenish the period packs, helping to ensure a continuous supply of menstrual hygiene products for their students at no cost to the school.
