The Spokane City Council has scheduled a hearing about the proposed Spokane Anti-Nudity Initiative at its next meeting on March 2. The legislative session is at 6pm at 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane WA 99201. The agenda can be downloaded at https://static.spokanecity.org/documents/city-council/current-agendas/2015/03/city-council-current-agenda-2015-03-02.pdf. At last Monday’s meeting, there were 10 nudists to support the opinion that nudity is wholesome — That it is not appropriate to to ban all nudity in order to prevent certain objectionable behavior (the bikini baristas).
While there was no opportunity to speak last Monday, supporters are needed this coming Monday. However, it is very important that we put on our most calm and reasonable faces. We need to show everyone that we are just like they are, but we like to be nude.
The petition filers want to have the city council take a vote to pass their proposed ordinance without validating the signatures and without putting it on the ballot.
The signatures are, as of yet, not validated.
It is extremely important that nudists and those who support nudism in Spokane attend the city council proceedings and speak against having the city council pass the measure without validation of the signatures or without the vote of the people.
