Tomorrow the DC Council is holding a hearing on Bill 19-567, which would allow the police chief to create permanent Prostitution Free Zones, which we call Trans Profiling Zones. We will be testifying with a large coalition of groups opposed to this bill, but we need your help!
Please take a moment to sign this petition to the DC Council adding your voice in opposition to this bill. You can also learn more about how these zones endanger trans people’s lives in the video here and in the findings from our needs assessment here. We need to take a stand against criminalization and police bias, and encourage our lawmakers to start thinking about real solutions to the many injustices trans people face.
