The goals of this club are to destigmatize periods in our community, combat period poverty, and advocate for proactive period policy. Through community discussions, documentary viewings, informative presentation and affinity spaces we hope to interrogate the systems in our community and the larger world that stigmatize periods. Periods are a bodily function and should be thought of as so, and not something to be quieted or feel ashamed about. The second part of this clubs mission is to combat period poverty, the inability to access menstrual products due to economic or social barriers. Menstruators should have access to period products. We hope to address this issue through menstrual hygiene drives, fundraisers, and other inventive ideas. The last facet of this club is to advocate for period policy. This will take the form of working with other schools and like-minded youth to pressure lawmakers into implementing policy that supports menstruators.

Our mission is to provide a space for and about mixed race students to discuss what being mixed means to them, and how it affects their lives.

Although spaces where multi-ethnic and cultural people can meet, race has a political significance that is often talked about in terms of one single group, and only identified with that group. We believe that race is a social construct set up to enforce a white supremacist system, but we also need to function within a system before we can change it.
