  • Mission:
  • The American Restroom Association’s mission is to advocate for the availability of clean, safe, well-designed public restrooms by promoting restroom design, technology, availability, and accessibility, and legislation and regulations regarding public restrooms.

  • History:
  • ARA started with in August 2004 with a small grant that jump-started work toward our goals, and we presented our Call to Action to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to an international audience in Beijing. With little money and no paid staff but a tenacious board of directors and dedicated volunteers, ARA began each year to attend the World Toilet Summit & Expo to build relationships with like-minded professionals around the world and raise the international profile of ARA.

    Over the last five years, ARA has garnered increasing media attention: coverage on ABC World News; articles in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today; and publicity in the greater Baltimore area. That coverage along with stories on NPR and in the international press have raised awareness of public restroom availability as the critical public health concern it is.
