Join Moving Traditions’ conversation with Anita Diamant, bestselling author of “Period. End of Sentence.: A New Chapter in the Fight for Menstrual Justice,” featuring two Kol Koleinu teen feminist fellows advocating for menstrual justice, following Period Action Day. The webinar will help parents and Jewish educators break through the taboo and have conversations to support pre-teens who will be getting their periods, teens who menstruate and those who don’t but still need to know.

This program is geared toward parents and educators of Jewish pre-teens and teens. If that’s not you but you are interested, you are welcome and encouraged to join us. Pre-teens and teens are also welcome.
