As an advocate for homeless populations, I understand how important and vital access to restrooms is to maintain their physical health and personal hygiene. Can you possibly imagine what it is like to be a homeless woman on her period? It is disgusting that we allow our fellow citizens to live in squalor.

Everyone deserves access to public restrooms, and too frequently people experiencing homelessness are criminalized for acts like indecent exposure for public urination, using laws to address sexual violence as a way to punish homelessness.

Since our wonderful gov't now spends more than half a million bucks to house each detainee at Guantanamo, maybe they can afford a little to help us right here at home!

Toilet access is a human right, let's pioneer DC to be a model for what America can do in all of it's cities: providing access to toilets for all residents without restrictions.

Do you ever think how grateful you are for a toilet? Probably not.

That's because access to sanitation is, for most of us, a mindless thing. Apartments might come without a dishwasher, but they'd never come without a toilet!

But for the thousands of homeless people, tourists, and families that walk the streets of DC every day, easy access to proper sanitation is not a part of their reality.

Finding a bathroom should be as easy as signing this petition. So do your part, click the link below.

Everyone deserves access to basic amenities like a restroom.
