Emergency Menstrual Hygiene Products

MSU students are piloting a program to provide FREE emergency menstrual hygiene products (MHP) to fellow students in an effort to support academic success and reduce truancy attributed to lack of access to MHP's. WACSS has partnered with RHA (Residence Halls Association), ASMSU (Associated Students of MSU), Case Hall Government, PERIOD, and SWHA (Spartan Women’s Health Alliance) to help with their efforts. This pilot program, also referred to as, "Mission Menstruation" began in Fall 2018 led by MSU students, Emily Estrada and cofounder Ta'Sheena Williams. Watch the YouTube video created regarding this program here.
