Full Summary:

Menstrual Product Program (MPP) Launch Party, cosponsored by Cultural Diversity and Affairs Committee/SGA and Women, Science, and Technology (WST)

Please join the Student Government Association’s (SGA) Cultural and Diversity Affairs Committee (CDAC) and the Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST) on Thursday, October 17 for the kick-off of the Menstrual Product Program (MPP)! This launch party will be held in the Griffin Ballroom in the Student Alumni House (190 North Avenue NW Atlanta, GA 30313) from 11am-12pm. The event will celebrate the start of the program, which seeks to provide free menstrual hygiene products for students.

Last semester, the program secured approximately $30,000 from Gift to Tech after multiple rounds of voting by the student body. The pilot phase of the program is set to begin this month. The program will acquire sustainable, biodegradable menstrual hygiene products from Aunt Flow. After working with campus departments to survey the level of need, 11 restrooms around campus have been selected to be stocked with these products. 

Please show your support for this crucial initiative by attending the launch party!
