Free To Pee Community Speak Out

The VOCAL-NY Homelessness Union & Picture the Homeless are reviving the FREE TO PEE Campaign. Join us on Halloween Day for a community speak out about NYC'S Bathroom Horrors: There are not enough clean and accessible public bathrooms available throughout the city. This is a homelessness issue, a public health issue, an accessibility and disability justice issue, a criminalization of poverty issue, a public funds issue, and so much more.

Why is this so important? It impacts all of us. NYC DOT has had tax-payer funded, self cleaning rest stations in storage for over a decade, and needs to install them NOW!


  • NYC MUST declare bathroom inaccessibility a public health emergency
  • NYC MUST install all Automatic Public Toilets – make them functionable and FREE.
  • NYC must engage in an economically just initiative to increase workforce that will ensure maintenance, sanitation and safety of restrooms.
  • Reopen ALL MTA bathrooms.
  • Commit to increasing access to public bathrooms across NYC.
