By Jackson Cofer and Elias Gross
There is a new campaign in town to raise awareness on a subject that no one really wants to talk about: bathrooms. Under the auspices of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (KFTC), Jackson Cofer, Elias Gross and a handful of concerned activists have banded together to form a Safe to Pee campaign for Lexington. Starting with the vision of access to safe bathrooms for all people, the campaign is focused on those who do not conform to traditional gender roles, the different-abled, and those in non-traditional families.
We are researching building codes to create an informed checklist to assess the conditions of bathrooms in Lexington. We plan to dispatch teams with our checklists and our vision to collect data on safe bathrooms starting in the downtown area.
