We the people” petition on the WhiteHouse.Gov website advocating the designation of more federal lands for nude recreation. Information and a link to the petition can be found below If 100,000 people sign the petition by Feb. 11 the federal government will respond and address this issue.
While public approval has been building continually for designating clothing-optional areas, governmental agencies that manage public lands like the National Parks Service and U.S. Forest Service have been slow to respond to the emerging demand. Not only have no new clothing-optional areas been designated, areas users had the liberty to legally go nude in the past, have since been re-designated as areas where nudity is prohibited.
In response a petition has been launched at the White House “We the People” website that calls on the Obama administration to provide greater access to federally managed public lands to those who enjoy clothing-optional recreation by designating portions of federally managed beaches and wilderness areas for clothing-optional use.
It’s important to note that this petition seeks designated, properly signed clothing-optional areas where users are at liberty to be nude if they so choose without fear of legal prosecution or official harassment. It does not seek the right of users to be nude wherever or whenever they choose.
