PISSAR (People in Search of Safe and Accessible Restrooms) Community Washroom AuditApril 4 (2014)

Have you ever felt unsafe in washrooms at GBC, or experienced gender-based harassment? Or, do you feel passionate about the issue of washroom safety and want to do something about it?

The Free to Pee @ GBC campaign’s latest initiative is a washroom audit of several GBC washrooms and we need YOU!

PISSAR (People in Search of Safe and Accessible Restrooms) was started by students at the University of California, Santa Barbara, to document and address the problem of bathroom access. Join us as we do a community audit of the safety and accessibility of washrooms at George Brown College for trans & genderqueer people, and people who don’t conform to gender stereotypes. A community audit is a simple but powerful exercise that lets community members take a leadership role in building a picture of the needs of their community, and in advocating for those needs to be met. Dress up, dress down, make some noise, and help us make it so that everybody is free to pee at GBC!

Date: Friday April 4, 2014
Time: 11:30am – 2pm
Location:  Casa Loma Campus, Meet in the Life Works Office (E130 Basement of E building beside the food court) for 11:30am

If you have any questions about the PISSAR audit, please contact Michelle at the Student Association Community Action Centre: sacaccoord@georgebrown.ca

  • Have you ever been asked if you’re in the right washroom?
  • Have you ever been pushed, hit, or verbally attacked for trying to use the washroom you most identify with?
  • Do people’s heads turn to watch you as you look for an empty stall?
  • Are you filled with anxiety while you wait for you friend to finish washing their hands?
  • Do you always try to find the single stall washroom, even if it is three floors above your classroom?
This is not equity. Share your experience.
