Decriminalizing Sex Work Is Popular Among Democrats, Independents

New polling shows a majority of American voters support decriminalizing sex work. Nearly half of voters surveyed supported ending the policing of sex work and a majority said they somewhat or strongly support decriminalization, according to a January poll administered by Data For Progress and YouGov Blue. Sixty-four percent of Democrats, 55 percent of independents, and 37 percent of Republicans indicated they support decriminalization.

NYC Expands Bail Alternative Program, Funded By Prosecutor

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio unveiled a $17.8 million “bail alternative” plan to release more people under supervision while they await trial.Expanding is important not only due to the city’s troubling history with pretrial detention, but because incarceration stacks the deck against defendants, who are left to fight their cases from within violent and overcrowded jails, away from the support of family and friends. Behind bars, their access to important services—such law libraries and resources, or mental health and substance abuse treatment—is nearly impossible to gain. Moreover,...
