National Period Day rally

Al Macker, 5, and his mother, Natalia Macker, wave at people passing by Saturday afternoon during their rally for National Period Day on Town Square. “You know why we’re wearing red? Because it’s National Period Day,” Al excitedly yelled across the square. The rally was part of the Period Project, a collaboration by St. John’s Episcopal Church, St. John’s Hospital Foundation and the Jackson Cupboard to increase access to menstruation products for girls and women.
