The purpose of the Public Toilet Advocacy Toolkit is to strengthen the capacity of citizen advocates and City officials to provide and maintain great public toilets that make communities livable, respect human dignity and promote health and well-being. PHLUSH regularly responds to requests from communities throughout North America seeking to increase toilet availability. These seventeen tools are designed for use by city managers, transit authorities, CPTED specialists, public health officials, toilet entrepreneurs, proponents of active living, media professionals, and engaged citizens.
