Do you consider access to toilets and hygiene a human right?  Aren’t public restrooms essential to urban livability, personal dignity, and public health?  Do you live in a community whose sewered systems are vulnerable to seismic events, climate change or sea level rise?  Would you like to join us in working for sustainable sanitation that restores health to our waters and our soils?

Yes?  Then we’d love to hear from you.
