Columbia University | New York, United States | Advancing SDG 6 & UNAI 6
" I am so excited to bring my passion for community uplift to a project with a much broader scope than any of the volunteer work I've done in the past. Alongside my cohort, I will be working to promote a policy which will secure public access to sanitary facilities for the disenfranchised in NYC. I believe ardently in the importance of safe and free public sanitation for the protection of public health and individual dignity, and I look forward to translating that conviction into action through the guidance of the Fellowship and the support of this remarkable community of Fellows. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: NYCRestrooms4All
NYCRestrooms4All is a campaign to open private restrooms in NYC businesses for public use. The need for publicly accessible restrooms is felt by millions every week, and most acutely by marginalized populations such as the homeless, those with disabilities, the elderly, and parents who are pregnant or caring for small children. By gaining legislative and popular support for this proposal, the Fellows hope to secure the right to safe and free sanitation for all of New York's residents and visitors.
By the end of the Project, they hope to secure the support of at least two City Council members for their policy proposal, and to build their public brand through a new promotional video, a blog series, and an awareness raising event which will unite several of the most prominent organizations from the sphere of sanitation activism.
