PHLUSH Co-Founders Bound for World Toilet Summit

November 29, 2009

Thanks to the support of the Old Town Chinatown community and a few other friends of PHLUSH from other part of Portland, Barb Lescher and Carol McCreary are ticketed passengers on a flight to Singapore.       We will be speaking at the World Toilet Summit.    You can preview our presentations here.   This is a real honor for our group of grassroots activists and for the City of Portland.

Special thanks to Lan Nguyen for heading up the fundraising effort and bringing us to 80% of the goal for the PHLUSH Singapore Challenge.    It’s a long way to Singapore, but until people in the United States take up the cause, we felt we needed to be there.  We hope someday to bring the World Toilet Summit to Portland to let the messages resonate:  Sanitation is health.  Sanitation is dignity.    And as our names says, Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human.
