Our #WCW this week is Michela Bedard, Executive Director at PERIOD. As an experienced community, political and nonprofit leader with a demonstrated history of organizing, fundraising, advocacy and coalition building, Michela has helped to progress PERIOD’s mission of “eradicating period poverty and stigma through service, education, and advocacy.”
PERIOD is a nonprofit that aims to center those disproportionately affected by period poverty and support local efforts for menstrual equity through the distribution of menstrual products, promotion of youth leadership, and championing of menstrual equity in policy. As executive director, Michela helps coordinate the distribution of these resources, while expanding the reach of PERIOD, helping support a network of hundreds of PERIOD chapters, youth-led organizations and product distribution partners.
PERIOD’s initiative and Michela’s dedication to their mission is why we’re honored to feature her as this week’s #WCW.
