Visitor, Jason, Janice; NCSL; Seattle; 8/5/2015

RSOL is excited to announce that we have four representatives attending our exhibit booth at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit. The event officially kicked off August 4th in Seattle and runs through August 6th. More than 5000 legislators and policymakers from all over the United States are expected to attend. RSOL’s exhibit booth is staffed by Brenda Jones, Janice Bellucci, Jason Murphy, and Kathleen Garner. This is our third experience attending a NCSL Legislative Summit so we are still learning; however, we are forming relationships and getting our name as well as our issues before key policymakers. There is no other single venue that presents us an opportunity to interact and network with lawmakers from so many states as well as this one.

Brenda reported that attendance at this summit is quite large, possibly larger than last year. Among those who have visited the RSOL booth are legislators from many different states, staffers, and other exhibitors. Brenda also noted that there are a significant number of people from other countries and that they really don’t understand the registry concept and were almost shocked when she explained it to them.

  1. One pair of shoes do not fit all. My daughter is in federal prison because of a sixteen-year-old girl engaged in prostitution to support her drug habit. A run away from home. Keep sending her away she kept coming back. She lied and told the policeman My daughter made her do it after an encounter with a guy in business with her. Who threw my daughter under the bus. Now She is a sex offender and in prison. And she is still prostituting for her drug habits the 16 yrs old girl. The guy is in prison too. He is a A career criminal. My daughter is a first time offender of a felony. She was on drugs too. But she can see the light now. She is serving an 8 1/2 yr sentence in federal prison in Tallahassee, Fl. The mother of k. Jones. Thanks.

  2. Why does WAR and RSOl have separate booths? That’s an awful lot of money to spend when your efforts could have been consolidated. Considering the poverty of this movement as a whole, I fail to see the benefit of spending so much to cover a single conference.
