Interviews with Sex Worker Advocates about Prostitution on 82nd Ave. in Portland

Prostitution-free zones are areas in which police have probable cause to believe a person committed prostitution. Offenders could be banned from the zone for 12- 18 month period. In 2007, Mayor Tom Potter allowed Portland's Prostitution Free Zone ordinances to sunset after determining that the law was ineffective. In recent months, neighbors of the Montavilla neighborhood have begun organizing to push for its reinstatement.
We spoke with Crystal and Lily. Crystal Tenty of the Portland Women’s Crisis Line and coordinator of the Sex Workers Outreach Coalition. Lily is a member of SWOC and a sex worker. 

We also spoke with Rachel West of the US Prostitutes Collective and who was a member of the San Francisco Task Force on Prostitution.

What should we do about prostitution in Portland?

Prostitution is flourishing in the Rose City. Some Portlanders blame it on city hall's decision to let the prostitution exclusion zones lapse. They want the zones back and more efforts made to put prostitutes in jail. Other city residents say that rehabilitation, not more police, is the answer. In the meantime, Mayor Tom Potter has announed a new initiative to fight prostitution on 82nd Ave. through enhanced enforcement and prosecution combined with treatment options. How should we deal with prostitution in our city? Do we really understand the problem of prostitution?
