Community Building Tip: Dignity

For my current set of tips, I'm using the list "101 Small Ways You Can Improve Your City.

60. Provide dignity. Extend basic services to help your city’s most marginalized residents feel more welcome. Mobile showers and easily accessible public restrooms give people a moment of privacy and peace. The good news is, people want this and it works.

Yes, brilliant, go do that.  \o/  Include less-common features like family bathrooms, adult changing tables, and genderfree bathrooms.
