The GottaGo! team met each other at the Citizens’ Academy Civics Bootcamp in the late autumn of 2013. Part of the Bootcamp training was a practicum, where teams chosen by the facilitators were to agree on an issue and plan a strategy. We quickly came to agreement that a network of public, open, toilets accessible to people with disabilities, was important for all of us and for the City and that it was not going to happen without a public, organized campaign.
GottaGo! was launched with a presentation of our idea to the panel of key decision-makers at the Bootcamp. By coincidence, it was World Toilet Day, November 19. The enthusiasm that greeted our idea, gave us the impetus to launch the campaign.
GottaGo! has a small core team and a growing list of active supporters.
