Our giveback program smashes shame around bodies and reproductive health.
Alongside our partners (and with your support!) we’re fighting for better access to puberty education, amplifying grassroots activism, and donating our undies and time. When you purchase Speax you’re helping give life to our programming and initiatives — thank you! Check out how you’ve made an impact below:
Advocating for equity
We’re speaking out against discriminatory policies and advocating for inclusivity and gender equity, beginning with our United for Access campaign.
This campaign is calling for free and easy access to period products for U.S. students, including a petition hand-delivered to Betsy DeVos. We are proudly the first menstrual hygiene company to do this, and optimistically predict we are not the last! We partnered with PERIOD, the world’s largest youth-run nonprofit, and changed 5 local policies with our activism. We’re currently hard at work planning our next action — stay tuned for what’s to come and how you pitch in!
Educating future generations
The EveryBody education program is an inclusive medically accurate, hands-on curriculum designed by certified teachers and health experts. To implement the program, we partner with schools, after-school programs, and youth-serving nonprofits (and psst it’s free for educators!).
EveryBody is an opportunity for young people to learn about their changing bodies in a safe, empowered space. We’ve developed thoughtful programming with input from inclusive sex educators and an adolescent reproductive health specialist.
Now, if your eyebrow didn’t raise at “medically accurate,” it should: of the 24 states in the U.S. that mandate sexual education, only 13 require this information to be backed by science. We won’t be satisfied until all 50 states prioritize factual, unbiased puberty education.
