NARSOL is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization exclusively dedicated to defending the constitutional liberties of registered citizens and their families.NARSOL opposes dehumanizing registries and works to eliminate discrimination, banishment, and vigilantism against persons accused or convicted of sexual offenses through the use of impact litigation, public education, legislative advocacy, and media outreach in order to reintegrate and reconcile affected individuals and restore their constitutional rights.
Vivante Espero is NARSOL’s 501(c)(3) foundation, which manages opportunities to educate and inform the general public about laws and policies that dehumanize individuals previously convicted of a sexually-based offense. Like NARSOL, it seeks to raise the public’s awareness about the direct and collateral harms associated with any existing or proposed legislation at the local, state, or national level that impedes, restricts, or outright violates the civil rights of our citizens. Vivante Espero also houses NARSOL’s legal fund, which supports civil rights challenges around the country that offer a chance for improving the lives of many registered citizens.
The NARSOL State Law Wiki gives links to statutes to answer the most frequently asked questions regarding the sex offense registration laws of each state. While we strive to be as accurate and complete as possible, our researchers are not attorneys, and state laws are often full of nuances and gaps, and laws can change with little or no notice. Please do your own due dilligence.
Connections is a place to share your day-to-day experiences, such as your favorite joke, your amazing accomplishments, recent events (happy or sad), or just your current philosophy of life. Like any social media site, you will find people you agree with and people you disagree with. You can choose to friend or unfriend people, or even block people. The administrators have set up basic rules of courtesy, and there is a strict age requirement (must be 18 or older). This is a site for sharing and socializing.
The NARSOL You Tube Channel is where you can find all of our video resources, including conference talks, our “Lives on the Registry” series, the “Did You Know” shorts, and other informative and entertaining videos. If you have a smart TV, you can also program it to stream “NARSOL TV’ directly into your living room!
Lives on the Registry is a NARSOL project with one mission: to tell the stories of the one million-plus people listed on sexual offense registries across the US. We focus on their stories, their families, and their struggles to reintegrate back into a society that is often indifferent or hostile. We shed light on the oppressive laws that put people on this unconstitutional blacklist and keep many of them there for the rest of their lives without any hope of being removed, no matter how much they’ve changed or improved their own lives and the well-being of the community.
