Welcome

American Restroom Association’s (ARA) goal is nothing less than a full-scale toilet transformation in this country so that our public restrooms are no longer a laughingstock among the developed world. Only by working together and forming a strong advocacy group for decent public toilets are we going to be able to bring about the necessary changes in our public accommodations.

In 7 minutes, Newsy “In the Loop” host Christian Bryant excellently captures the history and current state of U.S. public restrooms and why our efforts are so critical. Featuring ARA Co-founder and President Dr. Steven Soifer. Click here to watch!
