This bill would repeal New York’s archaic, unfairly-applied statute on loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.
Transgender women who identify as Black, Indiginous, and People of Color (BIPOC) are disproportionately targeted for arrest because of their identity. This has made life more dangerous for the TGNCNB community. After someone is arrested under this penal code they are subject to experiencing horrific forms of violence by police, correction officers and other inmates. We must end this barbaric law which targets TGNCNB people now.
