The Dot Project is a menstrual care organization in the community of Baltimore, MD distributing menstrual products to local shelters, homes, schools, and the homeless community. We are fighting alongside others to take down period poverty in our communities. The period poverty code can not be cracked overnight or with just one person, but we can only start one period at a time.
We have created the first outdoor period product panty, located at The YNOT Lot in Baltimore City. We wanted to create a miniature structure to provide, those we can not reach, a place to feel safe and have the products they need for their periods. We want to be able to provide pantries to other communities.
