Does this ordinance unfairly target victims of abuse?

No, this ordinance is not intended to target victims of abuse or those who call the police for help or report domestic violence, child abuse, or sexual violence.

Below is an excerpt from the new ordinance :

(j) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, the City shall not enforce its crime free multi-housing program based on:

(1) contact made to police or other emergency services, if (a) the contact was made with the intent to prevent or respond to domestic violence, child abuse, or sexual violence; (b) the intervention or emergency assistance was needed to respond to or prevent domestic violence or sexual violence; or (c) the contact was made by, on behalf of, or otherwise concerns an individual with a disability and the purpose of the contact was related to that individual’s disability;
(2) an incident or incidents of actual or threatened domestic violence, child abuse, or sexual violence against a tenant, household member, or guest occurring in the dwelling unit or on the premises; or
(3) criminal activity or a City ordinance violation occurring in the dwelling unit or on the premises that is directly relating to domestic violence, child abuse, or sexual violence, engaged in by a tenant, member of a tenant’s household, guest, or other party, and against a tenant, household member, guest, or other party.
