Let It Flow! NYC Funds Free Pads And Tampons for All Schools, Jails, and Shelters
Last week, New York City Council approved a policy that provides free tampons and pads in every public school, jail, and shelter in the city. The law is the first of its kind in the United States, and it will provide supplies to an estimated 300,000 youth and 23,000 people in shelters annually. City council member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland led the bill, which passed unanimously 49-0.
