November 5 – Portland Sex Workers and the Prostitution Free Zone
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.
