URGE at the University of Cincinnati sits in an area of rich history for both racial, gender and reproductive justice, and aims to further that history. The student chapter hosted The National Period Day rally, working to abolish Ohio’s menstrual product tax and hosts a comprehensive sexual education event every semester known as The Sex Drive. The UC URGE chapter continues to grow as time marches forward.
URGE UC is already off to a busy start after becoming a registered student group at the University of Cincinnati! One of their ongoing campaigns this semester is a campus wide menstruation product drive. They are collecting menstruation products to donate to local shelters and have partnered with UC’s Women’s Center, RAPP Center, EPS, and LGBTQ Center. If you are a UC student and wish to donate you can find collection boxes at Steger Student Life Center.
