GENDER Free Signs ~ The Equitable Restrooms Act
Posted by Kelly Brewster on
GENDER Free Signs – Illinois LAW ~ law SB 556 — the Equitable Restrooms Act.
The Equitable Restrooms Act signed in Illinois, which takes effect on January 1, 2020, mandates that all single-occupancy restrooms “in a place of public accommodation or public building” to be identified as “all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use… and each single-occupancy restroom shall be outfitted with exterior signage that marks the single-occupancy restroom as a restroom and does not indicate any specific gender.”
Illinois will join California, Vermont and New Mexico in creating equitable restroom laws, according to a news release from Equality Illinois, the state’s civil rights organizations for LGBTQ people.
“A simple yet powerful bill, SB 556 will provide privacy, security, and convenience to users of single-occupancy restrooms, including individuals who may need the assistance of a caregiver, people with disabilities, parents with opposite-sex children, and transgender people,” said Myles Brady Davis, communications manager and press secretary at Equality Illinois.
