Advocacy in Minnesota

The Minnesota Chapter is led by advocates Tram N. and Sarah St Louis. They were inspired to start advocating for accessible restrooms with universal changing tables because of their own struggles to care for their children while away from home.

In 2023 Tram and Sarah have introduced legislation in Minnesota, SF 999, that will require adult changing tables to be made a part of the Minnesota building code. Read more about that here. The governor signed the bill in March 2023, and it goes into effect in 2024. Sarah served on the Technical Advisory Group to write this section of the building code. The code in Minnesota will be stricter than the International building code, requiring not only new large assembly, mercantile, educational occupancies, and highway rest stops to include adult changing stations, but also hospitals. 


Tram and Sarah are actively meeting with state legislators to work on getting grant money for small & some medium sized businesses that fall outside of the new code requirements to help encourage them to install the tables with a combination of state grant money and federal ADA tax credits & incentives.

Additionally, they been spreading awareness of the issue with other disability groups, and requesting an open discussion about the topic of accessible changing spaces in restrooms. Contact Sarah and Tram to see how you can help advance access and inclusion in Minnesota!
