Berkley Kramer started this petition to Napa High School

Have you ever gone to the bathroom at school and realized you had started your period? Felt panicked and worried because you didn’t have the proper toiletries? Couldn't go back to class (to grab your own supplies) then ask to go to the bathroom again because you felt embarrassed and didn’t want to be questioned? Couldn’t go ask the office or nurse because it would take up too much time?

Although it may seem like not a big issue, this is about women’s rights and health. A study conducted by Harris Insights & Analytics of teens ages 13 to 19 found one in five teenage girls can’t afford to purchase menstrual hygiene products. It also states that two-thirds of respondents feel stress because they don’t have access to tampons and pads, 61% have worn tampons more than four hours, 25% missed class because they didn’t have access to tampons or pads, and 83% think lack of access "is not talked about enough."

A simple way in order to solve this issue, is to supply free tampons and pads in school bathrooms. If this effects you or someone you care about, sign the petition to prove to Napa High School the importance & urgency of this issue.
