We are proud to collect donations for RACKET.
RACKET. was founded by Broadway’s Margo Seibert (In Transit, Rocky) and her lifelong friend, Caroline Angell. They believe that all people deserve a shame-free relationship to their periods regardless of socioeconomic circumstances. RACKET. aims to redefine menstrual hygiene products as essential; to provide menstruating people access to these products; and to encourage an open dialogue about menstruation, thereby transforming a historically taboo subject into one that connects communities.
During the run of Oleanna, Outvisible and our sister studio, Arts Detroit, will be collecting donations for RACKET. Please considering bringing a menstruation product to donate when you come to see the show!
