Abby and Chloe of Grant High School worked hard to advocate for free menstrual products in the bathrooms all across the school district (largest district in the state). They started with just Grant and documented the work. Once findings were presented to the district board, they decided to do a Pilot program of period products in all high schools' female or gender neutral bathrooms across the district. They are now hoping to expand this to middle schools for the 2019-2020 school year.
