Empowering Harlan County Students

Hygiene products are basic necessities, yet there are many silent barriers students face in getting access to them. The Empower Project, founded in Harlan County, KY, strives to assure the needs of students in the community are met by collecting and distributing donated products to local schools. As All Access EKY works to focus on barriers that provide access to birth control and good reproductive health care we were interested in learning more about how this group overcomes a very similar stigma and issue.
