End Period Poverty on EMU's Campus

EMU Changing the Cycle is on a mission to end period poverty on EMU’s campus by making sure that everyone at EMU has access to free period products when they need them. We've teamed up with Aunt Flow to provide free organic pads and tampons in twenty-one bathrooms across campus, and will be expanding to more bathrooms in the future! To learn which bathrooms have Aunt Flow dispensers, visit the Find Bathroom webpage.
