If you have a child in a New York City middle or high school, make sure that menstrual products are available in the bathroom, as mandated by city law. If not, follow up with the school and your local City Councilperson.

Call your State Senator and urge him/her to cosponsor and support S6176which will provide menstrual products in prisons.

Call Governor Cuomo (518-474-8390) and express your concern about the availability of menstrual products in New York State prisons. Urge him to support S1676 and work with the State Senate to get the bill passed this session.

Call your Representative in Congress and urge him/her to cosponsor and support HR972, which will provide menstrual products in federal prisons and in shelters and schools that receive federal funding, and will provide a refundable tax credit to low-income individuals who regularly use menstrual products.
