To address the inaccessibility of menstrual hygiene products to women experiencing homelessness in Hennepin and Ramsey County and to combat the stigma surrounding menstruation, Maggie teamed with her community to organize a public awareness event about period poverty. She also created a social media campaign to spread period poverty awareness and share testimonials of women experiencing homelessness.
Her fight doesn't end there! Maggie proposed a policy brief to county commissioners of Hennepin and Ramsey County mandating that every homeless shelter in these counties be supplied with ample menstrual hygiene products—an experience proven beneficial to her as she pursues her Political Science major. Way to take action in a big way, Maggie!
