PISSAR Checklist, Pacific Lutheran University, Fall 2018
2
PISSAR = People in Search of Safe and Accessible Restrooms
3
A coalition of genderqueer and disabled peoples formed in 2003
4
The week of November 7-14th in Fall 2018, a group of curious people formed a "Pee Patrol" on Pacific Lutheran University's campus. Here are our findings. (Direct questions to Dr. Marnie Ritchie, ritchiem@plu.edu)
5
We used the PISSAR checklist in the "Calling All Bathroom Revolutionaries!" work by activists Simone Chess, Alison Kafer, Jessi Quizar, and Mattie Udora Richardson (modifying the language from "unisex" to "gender neutral")
Grab Bar dimensions
6
We conclude from this checklist that much more work must be done. We call on the PLU community to rectify inaccessible infrastructures. And we pledge to continue fighting for restroom rights for all.
