At the May 31, 2021 Council Meeting, Council approved a request from United Way of Northern BC for a Period Promise Employee Campaign to be held during the month of June 2021.
“Periods are a fact of life. But if you’re living in poverty – or vulnerable in other ways – access to necessary menstrual products can be challenging. And COVID has made it even more difficult. The lack of access to menstrual products and facilities to use them safely has made it a chronic challenge for those who menstruate– cis-women, cis-girls, trans and non-binary people.” – www.unitedwaynbc.ca
