Yesterday, Seattle City Council voted unanimously to end drug and prostitution loitering laws! ✨
The ordinances "negatively impacted communities of color, but prostitution loitering law in particular have been used as a pretext for the Seattle Police Department to profile young women of color as suspected “prostitutes,” leading to unnecessary and unwarranted police interactions, background checks, unconsented and possibly illegal searches, harassment, and other harms"
@aeva great news!!
