Fret Buzz Posted October 17, 2017 Share #1 Posted October 17, 2017 ...if prostitution was legalized in your state/district/territory? Quote A new bill to decriminalize sex work in the District would make sex workers — many of whom are victims of violent crimes — more comfortable reporting those crimes to police, said Monarez. The bill, introduced by D.C. Council members David Grosso (I-At Large) and Robert C. White Jr. (D-At Large), would make the District the only U.S. jurisdiction to decriminalize prostitution outside some areas in Nevada, where legal brothels exist. Activists say the bill would also make it easier for sex workers to find other jobs and housing because they would not have prostitution-related arrests on their records. “This is about protecting the human rights of our residents,” said Grosso, a progressive council member who also led the push to decriminalize marijuana in the District. “Arresting our way through this has never worked.” Tom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
