ABOUT THE ENDOMARCH MOVEMENT

The EndoMarch movement has ignited an international endometriosis & menstrual health uprising that has swept across the globe in 60+ countries and counting, leading to dramatically increased awareness and inspiring meaningful policy changes around the world, including here in the U.S., where senators are now involved in spearheading a bipartisan bill to increase federal funding for endometriosis research and public awareness campaigns.

Since our first campaign in 2014, the Worldwide EndoMarch has grown to be the largest, internationally-coordinated endometriosis event & coalition in the world, representing over 100 endometriosis patient advocacy organizations, groups, and medical societies from around the world, which have joined together to fight for change and address the urgent unmet needs of those suffering from endometriosis, a potentially crippling, whole-body chronic disease that is one of the leading causes of gynecologic hospitalization and school absences in adolescent girls. Visit endomarchnews.org to learn more or email us at info@endomarch.org.

Admission to the 7th Annual Worldwide EndoMarch, San Francisco, is free of charge and all are welcome to join us for this family-friendly day to meet other Endo Sisters & Supporters who travel from across the state of California & the country to be a part of the global EndoMarch movement for endometriosis awareness.
