Period Promise Campaign

May 13 - May 27, 2022

Donation Drive

From May 16 - 27, SFU is collected menstrual products as part of the Period Promise campaign. 

Period poverty is much more common in our community than you would think. Half of all people who menstruate say that they have struggled to purchase product for themselves at some time in their life, and more than a quarter have gone through a period without having any products to support them. Your donations will ensure that members of our community will receive access to menstrual products. Thank you in advance for your support.

This virtual event is free, and panelists include the Honourable Senator Mobina Jaffer, Q.C., Sobhana Jaya-Madhavan (SFU), Ellen Mee (SFU, student) and Angelene Prakash (New Westminster BIA).
