D.C. May Decriminalize Prostitution

D.C. Considers Decriminalization of Prostitution

A push to decriminalize the “world’s oldest profession” is gaining steam in D.C., according to news reports.

D.C. Councilmember David Grosso has proposed legislation that would strip criminal penalties away from those who participate in “consensual sexual exchange.” Working with a sex worker advocacy group to hash out the specific language, Grosso introduced the bill in early October.

“It is time for D.C. to reconsider the framework in which we handle commercial sex and move away from criminalization to focus on human rights, health, and safety,” Grosso said in a statement.
