julia coste

Julia is one of the two founders of Monthly Dignity in Canada, and has co-chaired the organization since its creation. She is extremely passionate about the cause (period poverty) and as a result has been given the opportunity to represent Monthly Dignity at WE Day, in the Canadian Parliament as well as in the Forces Avenir competitions.

I'm currently completing a master's degree in Public Policy and Global Health. Ever since I was a kid I've wanted to work in humanitarian action and solidarity work. Because we don't all have equal access to health services, I'm hoping that through Monthly Dignity I'll get the chance to help things move forward and bring some light on the issue that is period poverty.
