Black Period Project, inc. is a small non-profit organization fighting period poverty and advocating for period poverty in North Carolina. We were founded in March of 2019 and have expanded to a fully-operational incorporated entity as of August 2020. Black Period Project HQ is currently in Greensboro, NC; but we serve the Triad and Sandhills area (and ALWAYS looking to impact further).
WHAT DO WE DO?
We provide hygiene kits for youth centers, Title I schools, and homeless shelters. Black Period Project sponsors these entities and provides menstrual hygiene items and funds for their material needs closets.
We work with mentoring organizations to create age-appropriate menstruation education and empowerment curriculum
We organize and advocate on a legislative side; writing to senate/congress, marching in Days of Action, creating/signing petitions, etc.
