Lynette Medley was presented by Councilwoman Cherelle L. Parker with the RESOLUTION 190480:
Recognizing May 28, 2019 as Menstrual Hygiene Day and honoring NoMore Secrets MBS Inc. A Realistic Approach to Sexual Health, a sexuality awareness non-profit organization, whose mission is to decrease the silence and secrecy associated with the menstrual cycle by destigmatizing and normalizing societal behaviors, language, and attitudes related to menstruation and menstrual hygiene!!
WE are implementing "A CALL TO ACTION" to address the nationwide deficits in education and awareness in regards to period stigma.
The reality is..young ladies have reported running away from homes/placements, stealing, skipping school, cutting classes and using unhealthy methods such as using stuffing out of stuffed animals, old rags they have found or wife beaters etc. during this time of the month just to survive.
Due to the overwhelming systemic TABOO regarding sexuality awareness the stigmatized perceptions our communities have toward feminine hygiene products and the menstruation cycle in general impacts the health and wellness of girls of all ages. There are currently NO ongoing programs that assist persons with feminine hygiene products. Families with multiple young ladies experience greater levels of need due to the elevated costs incurred during that time of the month.
We NEED your HELP!! We are asking for donations to offset the costs in addition to collecting feminine hygiene supplies such as sanitary napkins, tampons, wipes, soap and disposal underwear for our young ladies that cannot afford those items that we take for granted.

Cherri Gregg/KYW Newsradio: Ending Period Poverty
Our changemaker of the week is No More Secrets, Mind Body Spirit, a nonprofit working to reduce the stigma around human sexuality. Recently, the organization issued a call to action to raise money and in kind products to end "Period Poverty." Many women living in deep poverty are unable to afford feminine products, which are not eligible for purpose using food stamps or EBT cards. Founder Lynette Medley discusses some of the medical conditions some poor women face because of lack of access to basic menstruation necessities.
No More Secrets Mind Body Spirit Inc. is the nation's first sexuality awareness and consultative organization. Our focus is to decrease risk in vulnerable populations through the development and implementation of sustainable programming and polices.
Our mission at No More Secrets Mind Body Spirit Inc. is:
To decrease stigmas, silence and secrecy by increasing self-esteem, socialization and self-love.
