Santa Clara County Board to Consider Measure for Free Period Products

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors will consider recommendations during their Tuesday meeting to support and implement a bill which ensures all public bathrooms are stocked with free period products. 

California’s “Menstrual Equity Act of 2021” was introduced last month by Rep. Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) and requires restrooms in public schools, community college districts and local government agencies to provide free menstrual products at all times. 

Possible actions the board will take include adopting a resolution supporting the measure and sending a report to the board’s May budget workshop detailing the amount needed to supply the county’s bathrooms with a year’s worth of free period products.
