One of the greatest challenges facing people on sexual offense registries is an appalling lack of basic information, contacts, supporting organizations, employment, and housing. These are all absolute necessities for simple survival in an often hostile world. If one chooses to become an advocate for change, the difficulties loom even larger. So much of our time and effort is spent re-discovering a resource or reinventing a wheel that already exists. Our strength comes from working together, rather than alone. Sharing critical information is one way we can do that.
Because of the controversial and sometimes inflammatory nature of registry reform advocacy, it’s entirely understandable that many people have been conditioned to “stay below the radar,” making it even more difficult for registrants, loved ones, and advocates to find reliable information or assistance. We hope that you are willing to help us tackle this issue with a willingness to share what you know for the betterment of almost a million people on the registry who desperately need it!
