Richland Public Health is excited to partner with Pampers and Procter & Gamble to bring baby changing stations to men's restrooms throughout Richland County.

In 2018, a Florida father, Donte Palmer tweeted a photo of himself squatting in a stall and changing his son’s diaper on his legs. Palmer was forced to do this after he was unable to find a changing table inside a men’s restroom. This tweet went viral and Palmer founded #SquatForChange – an organization committed to arming dads with the proper changing tables to be hands in with their children. Pampers found that 9 out of 10 dads have gone into a public restroom to not find a changing table. They joined the fight with Palmer to properly equip public restrooms with these resources. In 2018, Pampers pledged to install 5,000 changing tables in men’s restrooms by 2021.
