Those interested in commenting on D.C.'s proposed 'Prostitution Free Zones' can do for for two more weeks

The following press release was received from the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance Executive Director Ricci Levy and Policy Advocate Elisabeth Fernandez-Kimmel both offered verbal testimony against District of Columbia Bill 19-567, the Prostitution Free Zone Amendment Act of 2011, at a hearing on January 24, before the D.C. Council Judiciary Committee. 

Also testifying against the bill were the local ACLU, GLAA, DC Trans Coalition, Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive, Best Practices Policy Project, and Human Rights Watch.

The Prostitution Free Zone Amendment Act will affect sex workers, or anyone thought to be a sex worker. You don't have to be guilty of a crime—just thought to be guilty. This new bill builds off the Prostituton Free Zone Act of 2005, which allowed the police to declare any public area a "Prostitution free Zone," for up to 20 days . The new bill proposes to make these zones permanent.
