Portrait photograph of Treasure Brooks
Poverty infringes on personal autonomy in a myriad of ways. Having grown up homeless and largely dependent on the resources of social equity NGO’s, Treasure Brooks took issue with the limited menstrual products offered to people in need. In her talk “Blood Bound,” Brooks will reflect on her early work as a menstruation activist and creator of “Operation T.O.M.,” a grassroots organization designed to disseminate high quality menstruation products to houseless gender marginalized people. Her talk will focus on the ways in which menstrual product inaccessibility reflects the larger pitfalls of reproductive autonomy looming over the United States.

Treasure Faith Brooks is a multidisciplinary artist and creative strategist from Oakland, California currently based in New York City. She is a founding member of The Meteor, a feminist media company launched in 2021 under the direction of former Editor-In-Chief of both Glamour and Self magazines, Cindi Leive. She is also founder of Maroon, a creative house exercising political resistance through community activations centered on wellness and spiritual literacy.
