URGENT - California SB357 legalizes street prostitution
Senator Weiner introduced a bill that would in essence, legalize street prostitution. It has passed the House and is now in the Assembly's Public Safety Committee getting ready for a final vote. This bill will make it so law enforcement cannot intervene in street prostitution.
This bill, if it passes will be devastating for your communities and also to the thousands of victims of sex trafficking. We will return to the days of the "Blade" or "Track" on University (Riverside), Fifth Street (San Bernardino), Holt Blvd (Ontario), Florida Ave (Hemet). Businesses will be affected. Pimps will move in from across the US. Most important, law enforcement will not be able to intervene and assist victims of sex trafficking.
THIS IS CRITICAL - Please share this Insider Alert with every one you know AND contact your Assembly Person IMMEDIATELY.

From the Legislative Counsel's Digest:
Existing law prohibits soliciting or engaging in an act of prostitution, as specified. Existing law also prohibits loitering in a public place with the intent to commit prostitution, as defined, or directing, supervising, recruiting, or aiding a person who is loitering with the intent to commit prostitution, or collecting or receiving all or part of the proceeds of an act of prostitution. Under existing law, a violation of any of these provisions is a misdemeanor.
This bill would repeal those provisions related to loitering with the intent to commit prostitution and would make other conforming changes. This bill would also authorize a person convicted of a violation of loitering with the intent to commit prostitution to petition the court for the dismissal and sealing of their case, and resentencing, if applicable.
