National Toilet Day has a serious message
Activists in Washington used the occasion of National Toilet Day to call for increased access to proper bathrooms for everyone.
Organizers delivered lunch-hour speeches Wednesday on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol where the traveling art exhibit
Sanitation is Dignity was also on display.
Water Advocates estimates that 2.5 billion people worldwide don't have access to clean toilets and have to make do using plastic bags or hustling off into the bushes.
