(10/4/18) A social media post has gone viral and sparked a conversation on the need for diaper changing tables in men’s restrooms.
News station WJXT reports that a father in Jacksonville, Fla. was photographed squatting on the floor of a restaurant bathroom in order to change his son’s diaper.
Donte Palmer posted the photo to Instagram with a message that read in part: “What’s the deal with not having changing tables in men’s bathroom as if we don’t exist!!”
Palmer tells WJXT the response and support he’s received to the post has been “phenomenal.”
He and supporters have started a movement they’re calling “Squat for Change.”
Palmer tells the news station he hopes to see changing tables in all restrooms.
