Rice for Reproductive Justice partners with Planned Parenthood

Members of Rice for Reproductive Justice joined local Planned Parenthood volunteers to make period relief kits for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. According to Citlalli Alvarez, a senior field organizer at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, “approximately 1,000 period kits” were created and packaged for delivery to local shelters. The success of this operation was contingent upon volunteers, Alvarez said.
