Cycle Alliance gives out feminine products, educates public on menstrual cycle
The Cycle Alliance, a pro-period teenage advocacy group, gathered at the Brooklyn Library on Saturday to hand out menstrual packages equipped with pads and tampons to help people in need, and to educate Brooklyn residents about the female cycle.
The group says periods are natural, not shameful. They’re fighting for worldwide accessibility to feminine hygiene products, and continued funding for free menstrual products for women incarcerated in New York.
The group also created a petition aimed at making feminine hygiene products available for purchase through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
