Makayla Krohling started this petition to Students

The goal of this petition is to expand on Kvetka Sanchez's petition to provide free menstrual products in the U.C. We are advocating for free menstrual products in all bathrooms, regardless of gender, across the Pacific University campus. Menstrual products are considered a luxury instead of a basic necessity.  This exempts individuals from using government funded assistance, such as food stamps, to purchase these products. Currently only eight states across the nation have made it a priority to provide free menstrual products in middle and high schools. Through this petition we are encouraging Pacific to be on the forefront of this movement. 

Many college students are at a financial disadvantage and have difficulty purchasing menstrual products. Lack of access to menstrual products can cause a feeling of insecurity and can impact a students well being. By providing free menstrual products Pacific can help ease this insecurity. To truly be an inclusive campus Pacific needs to provide these products in all bathrooms in order to support our non-binary and transgender peers. This will promote the feeling of safety, acceptance, and the overall health of all students. 

As social work students we believe this is a human rights issue. By implementing these changes we can help foster a higher quality learning environment. With signing this petition you will support us in reaching our goal of free menstrual products in all bathrooms by May 1st.
