El Paso City Council unanimously voted on a program providing free pads and tampons in ALL city-owned buildings!
Such buildings include:
- Recreation centers
- City offices
- El Paso International Airport
This new program will be implemented thanks to Reps. Alexsandra Annello, Isabel Salcido and Chris Canales, who placed the item on the city council agenda and used the City of Dallas’ program as a success story!
I am incredibly proud to see this resolution pass in the City of El Paso, which will help so many underserved communities and will help promote menstrual health, equity, and gender equality in our city. This will be a great step forward in addressing the importance of normalizing menstruation as well as toward promoting basic needs to the members of our community that experience menstruation.Mayor Pro Tempore Annello
