Fall River & New Bedford Menstrual Equity Project
Mass NOW in partnership with Fall River Mayor Paul Coogan, United Neighbors of Fall River and the Fall River Coalition Against Period Poverty was awarded a grant in 2022 through the Commonwealth’s Community Empowerment and Reinvestment program to provide free menstrual products & menstrual equity workshops in Fall River schools, shelters and community centers. We partnered to distribute over 30,000 menstrual products, hold menstrual equity workshops and produced a report on what we learned. We’re thrilled to be regranted this year to sustain this work in Fall River and expand to New Bedford. Learn more at mmecoalition.com/fall-river.
