Re: “No Place to Go

This is not only a problem for homeless folks; it is a problem to visitors to the city as well. We are ALL made to feel like criminals for needing to use a restroom in Berkeley! This is one of the insidious ways American culture tolerates and instantiates a class distinction—some people have the right of access to safe and decent toilet facilities, while others do not.

Toileting is a basic human right, and BTW, no one should have to ASK PERMISSION to do it, EVER. Berkeley is the WORST for finding some place you can use a toilet without spending money for the "privilege". Through its negligence of this issue, Berkeley government puts the business community, unprepared visitors, and homeless people in opposition, all so senselessly, all being pawns in this serious cultural dysfunction.

Come on Berkeley, REALLY—fix this problem.
The models are out there; other cities have found ways!
