" I am incredibly excited to be a Millennium Fellow as I believe it is a great opportunity for me to develop the skillset and tools I need to be a leader of change. I am also excited about how this Fellowship will have a positive impact on the sanitation and health in New York City. Access to bathrooms is a human right and should be available to everyone. Further, I am looking forward to connecting with likeminded people and becoming a part of a network of people with such high ambition to have a positive impact on this world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: NYCRestrooms4All
NYC Restrooms4All is a student-led coalition that advocates for public restroom availability throughout the city. The lack of public bathrooms impacts every New Yorker, including pregnant women, parents with small children, people who are menstruating, senior citizens, the homeless, and New Yorkers living with incontinence and other related health issues. Clean and safe bathrooms are essential to human dignity, which is why NYC Restrooms4All is working toward free restrooms throughout New York City.
