Mere Nudity Considered Lewd in Auburn WA

The city of Auburn, WA passed Ordinance 6514 that defines mere nudity as a lewd act and makes it a misdemeanor in any public place in the city of Auburn, WA.  This ordinance was introduced and passed on July 7, 2014.  Unfortunately, we were not aware of this ordinance before it was passed.  We will now need to contact the Mayor and City Council to make our concerns known.  If you live in the city of Auburn, or know of other nudists in that city, please send email to so that we can organize attending a city council meeting en masse to make our concerns known. City Council meetings are on the first and third Mondays of the month.
