Ben Mulcahy serves as outside counsel to The Pad Project, a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation that was founded by a group of high school students in Los Angeles and produced the documentary short film entitled "Period. End of Sentence.", which won the Academy Award in 2019 for Best Documentary Short Film and is available for streaming on Netflix. The Pad Project's mission is to help transform the global narrative surrounding menstruation into a source of empowerment and pride. To further that mission, The Pad Project continues to lead several initiatives designed to educate the general public about how girls around the world face barriers to receiving a quality education because they lack access to menstrual health education, adequate water, sanitation, hygiene facilities, and affordable, hygienic menstrual products. Ben also provides pro bono support to the Natural Resources Defense Council, a non-profit organization working to safeguard the earth - its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
