In October 2018, Donte Palmer posted a photo to Instagram (@realdontepalmer) and unwittingly turned a routine moment of parental frustration into a global awareness campaign championing hands-on fatherhood. The now-viral image of Donte squatting on the floor while changing his son’s diaper sparked an international discussion not only about installing more changing tables in public restrooms, but about evolving parenting dynamics and outdated caregiver expectations. With his family’s support, Donte embraced his new role as advocate and founded Squat For Change, a nonprofit with a mission to empower caregivers through education and inclusion.

Donte currently lives in Florida with his wife and three sons and recently announced a partnership with Pampers and Koala Kare to install 5,000 baby changing tables in public restrooms across the U.S. and Canada. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
