The Equal Futures Network is thrilled to announce our partnership with the Yukon Period Pantry as a part of Equal Futures 2023: A Gender Equality Summit! The Yukon Period Pantry​ is a community-led project that provides 24/7 access to free, clean and safe menstrual hygiene products to people who menstruate living in the Yukon – especially those experiencing period poverty.

As a part of the Equal Futures 2023 Summit, we are asking attendees to consider bringing menstrual hygiene products to be donated to the Yukon Period Pantry. Donation guidelines can be found here​.

Equal Futures 2023 is taking place on the traditional territories of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
