Free the Pad

CCSR student leaders Melina McGovern and Mariana Konstantara are heading a project to bring free pads to the Medford High School. Free the Pad was started in 2018 and was continued by Melina McGovern and Marianna Konstantara. Their project collects pads and redistributes them to Medford High School. Over the summer they have testified at public hearings in support of menstrual equity bills, held donation bins at our town hall, and are working with the Massachusetts chapter of the National Organization for Women to hold a rally to combat Period Poverty. Their goal for the school year is to get more pads and install free pad dispensers in the Medford High School.
