Decriminalize Prostitution

John Geluardi of the Contra Costa Times reports that a sex workers' rights group (Sex Workers Outreach Project) is mobilizing to put a ballot measure before Berkeley, California voters to decriminalize prostitution. If adopted the measure wouldn't change state prostitution laws, but local enforcement would become a low priority. In addition the city would be required to encourage the state legislature to repeal existing prostitution laws.
