    For young people, having a period can be a barrier to success. One in five low-income women report missing school or work due to a lack of access to period supplies. And with the ravages of Covid-19 reverberating through the city, the situation around period poverty remains daunting—and disproportionately felt.

    In this timely virtual program, presented by U by Kotex at Walgreens and benefitting the Alliance for Period Supplies, we’ll take an unflinching look at how barriers to healthy menstruation inhibit a large portion of Chicago youth from reaching their full potential. This roundtable conversation with researchers, youth, and activists on the front lines will explore how period poverty adversely (and inequitably) affects educational outcomes for young people in order to identify solutions we can all rally around to help eradicate this problem once and for all.
